Default i don’t know if my hesgehog is quilling

my hedgie is almost 6 months old and i have not noticed a period of time when he was quilling. I got him when he was about 5 weeks old so it could have happened before I got him? I notice he will loose a couple quills here and there but never a bigger amount of quills which is what I have read is normal! any help is appreciated, thank you!

They usually start to quill at 12 weeks old or a bit after 12 weeks old. Its likely he has gone through quilling and you didnt notice. They dont really loose huge amounts of quills when quilling, and it doesnt always seem very noticable. I only noticed Holly quilling because some her quills went from being all white to having more with brown in the middle and the brown went darker too.

I noticed when my hedgie was quilling but it wasn't a huge amount and you probably just didn't notice while it was happening,i just found extra quills lying around his cage and he was a bit more huffy and aggressive when I was near him so that's how I knew
