Default Hedgehog shaking before sleeping?

Last week I got a lovely hedgie called Herbert he is lovely and will happily be handled. However whenever he is held he just likes to burrow into clothes and sleep on people. Before he goes to sleep he gets comfy and then his whole body seems to vibrate and shake a few times. He does this every time he goes to sleep on us, is this okay? Thanks

Maybe he's purring? Some hedgehogs purr and while it can be loud (I had a hedgie who sounded just like a cat) some are more silent but they vibrate when they purr. It's a sign of them being content and happy

They are probably what some refer to as "Happy Hiccups" My Ivy does that too
