Default Weird behavior!!! Please help!

Hello! My hedgie Boris is about 3 and has been acting a bit odd recently. Usually he’s a friendly, curious guy who loves to run and play. For the past week or so though, he’s been really grumpy and jumpy. He hasn’t run on his wheel or even got out much. He does sleep in the open in random places though which is odd. Sometimes he just lays there with his eyes open which freaks me out. Hes been eating and drinking and pooping normally. He has dry skin on his face but hasn’t been scratching. I recently bathed him with flax oil too so I don’t know why that’s happening. His ears look normal and free of mites. His little tiny hand is a bit darker pink than normal. He’s lost a few quills with bulbs so it’s natural. I thought that he was quilling but the other symptoms don’t seem to fit in with this so I just want to make sure everything is alright.

Oh also we recently moved to a different location with lots of weird smells including that of a scary dog. Is he scared? Which should I do!!

Please help me. Thank you.

Since you just moved, I wouldn't be worried just yet. Hedgehogs have a very good sense of smell and he probably does smell all those weird and new things. Yes, he is probably scared, but that is normal. I would give him some time, maybe a couple weeks to even a month before he starts acting his chipper self again. Just keep watch for any signs of distress or illness. If nothing else is out of the ordinary, I wouldn't worry.
