Unhappy Possible Hibernation Attempt..?

I'm not sure if this is the right tag to this thread, but I'm worried about my 9 week old male hedgie Baymax. The past week for 3 straight mornings he had a cold stomach which I fixed using a warm rice bag and kept him with me for a bit but this over the past 2 days he activity level has dropped and he's been more defensive especially tonight. Is this something I should be really worried about..?

What's the temperature of the cage, heating setting and light schedule?

The temp in the room reads 80 and I've adjusted my schedual to help their light cycle since I'm still working towards a better setup.

So do you have a lighting schedule, or no?

Was 80 before or you adjusted it? And what temp is IN the cage not the room.

You need a simple desk lamp with a timer, it doesn't matter what your schedule is, they need 12 to 14 hours of light.

Seconding what Squirtle and Artemis have said...

Your hedgehog needs 12-14 hours of light. Simple solution is a desk lamp set on a $5 timer from Walmart. Easy and no worries!

You also need to purchase a thermometer for inside the cage. You can get one for $6 at Amazon or Petsmart. You hedgehog's cage need to be in the 75-80 degree range... and it needs to be air temperature and NOT something like a heating pad. I would suggest reading these stickies:
