I gave my hedgie a bath today and caught sight of a skin tag on his foot. How I missed it before (I just clipped his nails), I have no idea. He doesn't seem to be in pain by it, walks fine, and it isn't sensitive to the touch.

Is this something I should be worried about? Planning on taking him to the vet this week to get it looked it.

Which foot is it (as in front or back)? It could be an overgrown dewclaw, but it's hard to tell from the pic. If that is the case all you need is to trim it and it will go away. If it's not an ingrown dewclaw, then I would have it checked out by a vet.
