Unhappy Baby has hiccups?

Funny story.. I bought a male hedgehog about a month ago.
After having him for 5 days, I woke up with really high pitched squeaking coming from the cages.
I quickly went to see what was wrong, when I noticed 2 BABIES!
I talked to a local vet, and did some online research, and decided to just leave Mama alone for about two weeks.
I fed her everyday while she was sleeping, and although curious.. I didn't poke around in the cage.
Well after the 2 weeks were up I anxiously waited to see the babies, but came to find only one had survived
Now the baby is three weeks old and very healthy. He opened his eyes a few days ago, and also started using his back legs.
But I have a question about how he is acting..
When he sleeps with me, he looks like he hiccups, or it looks like his heart is pounding out of his chest.
Could anyone who would know, help me out?
I would greatly appreciate it

Tiny babies do look like they are having hiccups as the fall asleep. Very normal
