Default Bumps on face

We have had our hedgehog, Olive, for approximately one year. She hasn't experienced any health problems thus far, however today we noticed two small bumps forming on her face (below her eyes, but above her nose).

We've tried to do research to determine the cause of the bumps, however we are having some difficulty. Any ideas or suggestions? Her appetite is normal, as well as her ability to eat and breath.

Attached below is a picture.

We would greatly appreciate any help, insight, or feedback.

I would get a vet to check it out to be on the safe side. It could just be agitated from a scratch or something but I don't see any scratches from the picture if it was me I'd get a vet to take a look. My hedgehog never had bumps like that so I'm not sure what other advice to give. Hope this helps

I second that opinion.

I'm also lacking experience with such bumps, but I'd say it's better to have her checked out sooner rather than later. Unless they visibly grow from, say, one day to the next, I think it's fine to wait for the next available appointment rather than have her seen on an emergency basis, but I wouldn't put it off any longer than necessary.
