Default Is my hedgehog lethargic because of illness, or just tired?

Hello, I'm new to owning a hedgie, and I'm not sure if my little guy Winston is lethargic because he is ill, or if he is just tired. He's eating and drinking normally and seems to be running quite a bit on his wheel, but whenever I take him out of his cage, he'll run around on the floor, but if he's on my lap, he just lies there and doesn't move much. His cage and the room we're in is about 74 degrees and I can't see anything wrong with him.

That's pretty normal! Sounds like he's just a cuddler. I wouldn't worry too much as long as he's still eating & drinking normally and you're seeing definite signs of running & activity in his cage and such.
