Question Weird thing in m hedgies mouth!!!

Hey guys my male hedgehog is almost 1 year old. Today after his foot bath I noticed something weird coming out of his mouth. It looks like a piece of skin maybe... It's slightly pink and it sticks out when he closes his mouth. He's acting normal, eating and drinking. Nothing is swollen, is it a tumor or a tooth/gum infection? Please help!!! On the picture you can kind of see it, it's literally a small, for lack of a better word, flap. Close up it's got a shape similar to a worm, it's not just a random ripped piece of skin.

Its hard to see what it is. You really should have a vet check it out to make sure there is nothing going on inside his mouth.

I'm thinking it could be a skin tag? It looks exactly like one.

It does look like a skin tag. One of my hamsters had the same thing on his lip -- the vet just numbed it up and snipped it off. Of course, hamsters are a lot smaller and my Frost's skin tag was interfering with his ability to eat, so it was important to get it removed. I'd still have it checked out, but it probably doesn't need to be removed unless it grows.
