Question Help! hedgies toenail is falling off!!!!!

Hi everyone! i am a first time hedgie parent, i did a lot a research before getting a hedgehog. i got my little dude in march, a couple days ago i gave him his monthly bath. i always make sure that he can touch the bottom of the tub. when i took him out of the tub i noticed one of his toes on his front paw was bleeding, i didn't cut his toenails so it couldn't have been the quick bleeding. I rubbed some flour on it to stop the bleeding and i have been checking on it every day multiple times a day since, it looked like it had scabbed up and was fine. he's eating, drinking, and walking as normal. After having him out and walking around today i noticed that the toenail is now hanging off a bit. He lets me hold his paw to look at it but he is always on the go so its hard to look at it for a good amount of time. What should i do? he's not bleeding, I'm just worried about the nail coming off,it bleeding, and getting infected. please help!! should i just monitor it? should i take him to the vet? should i take his wheel out for a couple of days?
