Default One eye appears larger?

Is it normal at all for one of a hedgehogs eyes to appear slightly larger/buggier? I know hedgehogs have naturally buggy eyes in captivity but I'm wondering if anyone else can give some input on this.

Hedgehogs do naturally have buggy eyes, however if you notice one eye that is that is particularly buggier than the other, or protruding more than usual a vet visit may be in order. Tumours or growths can often form behind the eye socket which can lead to blindness or even death if it goes untreated. Lastly, I have also read that buggy eyes may also be a sign of heart disease.

I have not personally experienced this, but best of luck to you and your hedgehog. I hope a is well and this is not the case with your little one.

It is not alarmingly so, and it may just be the way his eyes are/ the lighting in my room.
Here is a pretty upclose picture but it was hard to get him to stay still at an angle that showed both eyes.
It seems the left is slightly larger.

I see it, its very subtle. dia Rose also has one slightly buggier eye. But if you look close her face is slightly crooked. I think its just like how some people have asymmetrical face.

I agree with with many of the others has said, it doesn't look overly buggy or concerning to me.
