Default Odd Behavior...Possible Hibernation?

I've had my hedgehog Jameson for a little over a month and I believe he is around 3 months. Within the last two days he has started acting differently, including being very wobbly. Almost walking like he is intoxicated and falling off his wheel. Could this be WHS or hibernation? Has anyone experienced this? There haven't been a lot of other symptoms other than a little bit more sleepy than usual. I'm really concerned though!!

What's the temperature in his cage? Does it fluctuate? What kind of heat set up do you have? Does he have a light schedule?

It doesn't sound like WHS as it comes on gradually. Does he get better if you hold him and warm him up against you?
