|FinnickHog||I sat on one of Finn's caltrops once. It wasn't very nice of him to leave it sticking pointy end up on the couch. And sometimes when I reach in to get the fleece out of the wash I get a nice poke. So inconsiderate!|

Usually, yes it's quilling at that age. It would be so nice if we could say all hedgehogs will quill on this many days old, but it's not that simple. Also sometimes the quilling times will blend together, you are finishing one when the other starts.
However we still have to watch for other signs of issues. Mites, bacterial and fungal infections don't care if a hedgehog is quilling.

Losing quills around 9 weeks of age, quilling right?
Spike leaves little deadly caltrops for me to step on here and there (jk). So I'm guessing its that time for him.
