Default Is this normal?

On my hedgehogs belly, there is a little thing protruding. I don’t rlly know how to explain it so I inserted a picture. He’s a boy, but on photo’s I find online none of the hedgehogs have anything sticking out like that underneath? Should I be worried? Do I need to take him to the vet? The guy I bought him from said he was 7 weeks old at the time, and I got Trunks a week ago, so he should be 8 week, I also feel like he’s a bit big for 8 weeks? Anyways, I’m concerned about this bit protruding from his abdomen.

That's his penile sheath but it seems like it's larger than normal. I would take him to the vet to rule out any infection or inflammation.

That looks pretty swollen. I definitely think you should have him checked out.
