Default Quilling at 12 weeks?

So my hedgehog is a little over 12 weeks now and I've noticed he has been itching a lot (in the past 2 days). While having him out today for about a half hour I noticed 3 quills on the fleece blanket I have for him to play on.

I inspected them and there was clearly healthy looking bulbs on them all. I do not see any quills growing in (but im not really sure what to look for- so advice on that would be helpful), There are also no missing spots or anything. He doesn't seem to have dry skin or dandruff. He has been acting like his normal self, on his wheel most of the time. Not too grumpy, except for when he wakes up like usual LOL.

Do you think he is quilling? Could it be starting now? Or could it be left over from his last quilling?

I saved the quills to see if they end up looking smaller than any new ones that might grow in.

It's most likely quilling- adult quilling starts at about 12 weeks.
