Default Foul smell coming from my Hedgehog?

This morning I smelt a horrible Odour coming from my Hog which seemed to be coming from his ears or head area? What could this be? It smells awful!

Could he have an ear infection?

I did consider this but his ears look fine? And I can't think of any ways of how he could get one as he's kept very clean

Is he eating well? Did you check his mouth? Tooth problems can smell terrible as well.

I'd make a vet appointment. A foul smell often indicates infection. Try giving him a bath and see if the smell goes away but if not he should be checked.

His appetite is fine he loves his food so I think I'll rule out a mouth infection. I'll follow your advice if there's no improvement I'll take a trip to the vets. Thanks guys
