Question Tongue stuck outside of mouth?

I found my hedgehog, Hercules, today after he was doing his regular exercise of walking down my hallway with his head in a toilet paper roll with his tongue stuck outside of his mouth. It seemed that he couldn't put it back in and was making small squeaky noises and squirming (not out of the ordinary) when I tried to move it. I looked a bit on the inside of his mouth and it doesn't appear that anything is there.

He managed to put his tongue back in after about 20 (terrifying) seconds and now seems fine (he ate dinner and went back to sleep).

What do you think happened? I'm worried he has a mouth tumor or something even though I didn't see anything in his mouth. He's still only 1, so he's very young.

The only way to know for sure if there's something going on in his mouth is to have him checked out by a vet.
