Default Weird yellow crust on fur

So I gave my hedgie a bath today because he was really dirty and I wanted to get rid off a weird yellow crust he has under his chin... it’s so hard it didn’t even go away after his bath ... does anyone know what is this? To me looks like dried pee or drool mixed with food idk ... how do you get rid of it? It’s not attached to his skin but his fur so is it possible to cut it a little bit ?

To me it sounds like he had boy time and got his "boy juice" stuck in the fur - This is how I've had it described to me and seen it described as loads of times in all differnt areas of the fur.
Its a right pain to get out - So I've been told anyway.
You sorta gotta soak it a bit then gently pull at it and to get it off. Although I'm sure someone who has a boy and has had to deal with it will be able to give you more tips.

This is the reason I didnt want a boy hog as my first hog😂

I thought that’s what it was but I wasn’t sure, thanks for the tip! I’ll try to soak it again and try to remove it (because it got bigger eww xD)

Yep sounds like it is! Lol. You’ll know once you soak it a bit and start teasing it out, the consistency will be like glue!

Usually it is just white but sometimes my boy’s is also a bit yellow (perhaps mixed with urine). I find it easier just holding my boy in one hand and first using a cotton swob over it with warm water and then tease it out with my fingers. My boy doesn’t seem to mind me doing it luckily, as he hates baths so easier to do it this way!

Someone recommended coconut oil to tease it out if it’s realky stubborn! Just test it first by holding it up to their nose and see how he reacts if he doesn’t mind it use it or he flips out obviously don’t... enjoy!
