Question Chin Bruising

Ollie's chin has a small bruise, on his lower lip. He likes to bite the bristles on the toothbrush while cleaning him, though I highly doubt that's the issue. He probably bit himself while eating, etc. Has anyone else had this problem? I only noticed it today during his foot bath. He ate his mealworms a bit carefully for the past few days/week, though I can't say for food. He's still eating well, though just curious.

Could you post a picture? Not to be exceptionally bleak, but my last hedgehog developed a bruise-like injury on his chin and it turned out being a tumor. Hedgehogs are extremely good at hiding the severity of their illnesses, so I would highly recommend a vet visit to rule out anything dangerous.

Ack, I couldn't get a good enough picture. It doesn't seem to be there as much today, and it's only on the inside of his lower lip, like where the upper jaw and teeth close over it. Still trying to snap a picture, though.

Couldn't get a good enough picture. They were all very blurry and out of focus, and I can't hold him still, open his mouth just a little, and take a picture all at once. I'm sure I stressed him out enough just by flipping him over and sticking a phone in his face. In all fairness, he has a dark area under his snout as a marking. He bit the clippers today when we tried to cut his nails. He likes to bite things, it's like some weird hedgehog addiction. I'll take him in if it doesn't dissapear, or look smaller, at the very least. Sorry.
