Default Gagging

Our hedgehog keeps gagging. He has been doing it for over an hour, so he is getting air, after a bit, he will stop and then do it again. Is this normal?

Gagging like a person would do? Like a dog after eating grass? Noises? Movement? Is anything visibly coming up?

The only normal thing I can think of that this could be would be anointing. If that's not what he's doing then no, it's not normal behavior.
Any change in diet? Any dehydrated foods, seed or nuts? Possibly a small piece of bedding stuck in his throat? How frequently is he doing it?

It was like a dog after eating grass. I called the lady who we bought him from, and she suggested giving him water. Sadly, he passed away last night.
