Theres a couple things it could be. Those little quills you are talking about I remember coming off when mine was quilling and it wasn't actually a split quill but just some smaller quills by his skirt that were shed. Sometimes they will scratch too if they were kept on shavings or other beddings besides fleece prior to getting them home. You can give him a bath with some Aveeno to sooth his skin. Just make sure when giving a bath that you keep the water out of his face and ears and make sure its not to deep until you find out if your hedgie likes water. This will help if he's itching from dry skin, quilling or from the old bedding. If the itching continues after this you might have to look into possible mites and bring him in to the vet to get Revolution.

Hope your hedgie feels better :)
