Exclamation Hedgehog Strange Eating Habit! *Help*


I have a 3 year old male hog and for the last week or so he's been eating his regular whiskas cat biscuits which he's been more than fine with in the past..however this last week or so I've noticed that he's been chewing his food and it's been getting stuck at the top of his mouth! Now I'm litterally on a daily routine of removing the food from his mouth, I've tried him on some small pieces of cooled chicken but on the odd occasion that's also been stuck so I'm just not sure as to why he does this? So weird anyone else experienced this? I've tried mashing his food so it's easier to eat too but again no luck

It sounds like there is something going on with his mouth. That isn't normal and needs to be checked out by a vet asap.
