There is no average weight for a hedgehog. But 405 is a good weight. My hedgehog is 460. If his weight continues to increase to an unhealthy level then it's time to do something. He may also be really excited about his food and eating more of it because he likes it.

Does your hedgehog run on a wheel regularly?

Do you feed insects?

Also, how old is he? Hedgehogs go through growth spurts. You'll see massive growth before 6 months and then they continue to fill out up to a year.
