Default Speed and Running Questions!

My first hedgie is only 2 1/2 months old, and I just had some questions. Is it normal for him to not want to use his wheel at all? He has completely no interest. He has not once been on it, and when I have placed him on it to let him know it is there he just gets right off! Hahah.

Also, he seems to move very slow compared to the videos I've seen of others. He might just be uber cautious, or is this typical when they are young and he will speed up as older? Maybe he is just not into walking?

Thanks for any input! As I have had him about two weeks I am not sure if I need to do a vet wellness visit, but of course a new "parent" is overly paranoid about everything and I just wanted to check with the experts. Thanks!
