Default What to look for if my hedgie falls?

So since I got Ezra he's taken a couple of tumbles but they've all been just an inch or two from the ground and he lands in a ball on a blanket so I haven't worried much. But tonight, I was putting him back in his cage and he started thrashing around and fell and landed on his side-ish. It still wasn't far since I was just ready to set him down and he got right back up and started walking around and eating but it still worried me. What should I look for when my hedgie does fall to make sure that he's alright?

check for swelling or bruising on his legs. you can also check his quills for blood if he fell on his back.
