Question Hedgie won't eat worms or exercise?

Hi, my 8 month old hedgehog Edmond has recently been acting a little strange. Usually he is a little grumpy, but lets me pick him up, always is up and about on his wheel throughout the night, and his absolute favorite thing to eat is mealworms. Recently, I've gotten him out to play and bond and tried feeding him worms multiple times. He usually perks up and inhales them in a second, but these 2 recent times he's just sniffed them and walked away (also worth noting, he was way more irritable and didn't want me to pick him up at all, but shouldn't be going through his final quilling process). I also have been staying up later/waking up in the night to find him fast asleep when normally he'd be on his wheel. I feed him two types of food, one rachel ray nutrish cat food and the other sunseed hedgehog formula. He has recently been eating all of the cat food I've provided and some of the sunseed formula. I researched a bit and many hedgie owners have had bad experiences with that type of hedgehog food? I am unsure whether he is beginning to show symptoms of depression, or if that sunseed hedgehog food is giving him tummy aches to the point where he doesn't want to eat snacks or exercise. I'll begin to only feed him the cat food and see how things go. Is there anything else I should do?
