Default Backwards quill?

Not sure if this is something to be worried about, but it seems that Bundles has one quill that is growing in the opposite direction (it actually seems to be pointing straight up, but when smoothed it aims towards his head).

It is the only one so at the moment I'm not terribly concerned, but I thought it would be a good idea to see if anyone else has had a similar experience.

Hedgehogs sometimes get weird quills that grow differently. As long as it doesn't seem to bother her and the skin under is looks healthy then there's nothing to worry about.
