Default Missing "Thumb" Genetic?

Hello, I have owned hedgehogs for many years now and have done a ton of research on them. However, I recently decided I wanted to try my hand at Hobby Breeding. I take them to the vet yearly and have everything checked. I also got both Mom and Dad from breeders who said they have never had problems with their lines. Today I noticed when looking in on Mom and the litter that one of the babies only has little numbs where their dew claws are on their front feet. I can't find anything definitive on this, just comparisons between hedgehog species, mine are the 4 toed African pygmy hedgehogs. The rest of the litter is all perfect, and the one doesn't act sick or any different from the others. I was wondering if anyone else had had this happen, or if it is more of a worry than one genetic abnormality.
