Default Odd Foam/Goop?

So two days ago when I went to give Nook his fresh water and food for the morning I noticed he had like semi-dried "goop" all around his mouth? At first I just assumed it was from his "Boy-time" but then it showed up the following day as well as this morning. And usually there's nothing "left behind" around his mouth, just sometimes his belly.

I wiped it off his mouth with just a washcloth and water the first day, and the following days, and it keeps coming back?

I thought maybe he had something stuff in his mouth but I checked all his teeth and mouth and they look perfectly fine. In fact his teeth are still nice and white and healthy looking even at 3, so I don't think that's the problem?

I'm wondering if maybe he happened to accidentally swallow some shampoo from his last bath? And now he's spitting it up? But I have no idea. And it doesn't look like the regular anointing foam.

He's still eating all his regular food and treats. Still running on his wheel and going to the bathroom regularly. Nothing seems out of habit, but this has me slightly worried since it's re-occuring and in the 3 years I've had him nothing like this has happened?

I'm planning on taking him to the vet on Thursday just to get him looked at, but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what it might be?
