Default Old Hedgehog?

Hello,

My hedgehog has been acting differently from the past..
He is 4 years old. He is eating and drinking water but less than before.
He seems weaker than before.
I can't really explain very well so I am going to compare to elder human.
He seems very like old person right now. His walk is very slow and weak, he is mostly laying down other than when he is eating. He sometimes sleeps outside of his pouch but before, he always always slept inside the pouch and never elsewhere.

Is this something I have to get vet treatment for? or did he just age?
If he didn't eat or had bad fecal, I would suspect some illness but he has regular fecal and little less eating but still eating enough I believe.
