Unhappy Play Time

My hedgie don't close up with me but he just don't want to stay in my lap or in my hand and even if he eat from my hands when I'm next to him he just look for a place where he can hide and clicking. What should I do? He is also less active during the night and he prefers to sleep. Every evening I put him out of his cage, I feed him with wet catfoot by my hands and just let him free in my bedroom for three or four hours. There is already my shirt on his cage. What should I do to get him more comfortable with me?
Thank you ♡

I usually try to get my hedgie out when hes tired or sleeping so hes not as active and running about. Sometimes I get a hoodie and put it on the wrong way around and put him in the hood while hes sleeping and maybe watch a movie so that he gets used to your scent but hes not getting stressed out. Its great your spending so much bonding time with him so keep going and good luck!

What is the temperature in the cage? If he's not active at night he may be to cold. Do you have a wheel in his cage to run in at night?

Yes, I have a big wheel 12 inches, but he doesn't use it...
In his cage there is a hot carpet 17.5 W, so it's hot
