Default Eating too fast or...?

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but this is the only somewhat fitting place I can think of. I apologize if this isn't the right place.
I got my first hedgie two weeks ago. He's a few months short of three years old, was with the breeder for about a year, and then went to the home I got him from. Two days ago, I noticed him coughing a little bit for probably something like five to seven seconds. He got into another small fit that was about the same earlier today; both times were somewhat shortly after he had eaten. I'm wondering if it's him eating too quickly or something else? Unfortunately the bedding that I have at the moment is a mix that does include pine, though I have plans to switch him to aspen when I get the chance, and the shavings are beneath a sheet of fabric similar to fleece. I did also recently change him over from one brand of food to another, but the change was gradual and there didn't seem to be an issue up until now. I just want to get an idea of whether or not it might be something I serious, or just him eating too fast. If it turns out he is just eating too quickly, if anyone could give me some suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
