Default Hoglet eye looks damaged and dry!

The title says it all...it’s at the time where their eyes are open and the one that isn’t damaged is open...but one looks crusted over or dried out i don’t know what to do...

Can you take a picture and post it? Eye infections can be fairly common due to their eyes being so protruded from their face so a vet visit would be highly recommended

It could just be dry saliva too... in any case continue to monitor closely until a better assessment can be made

A warm wet Qtip or towl held against it will soften any matter or sticky gunk glueing it shut. If it doesnt open after trying that a vet visit would be called for. We have had to do that with kittens before.
