It can vary from hedgehog to hedgehog in how much they will eat. You will want to gauge how much based on your hedgehog's reactions to being fed.

For me, with those that are only eating from a syringe, if I get 5-7 CCs 3 times a day into them, they are doing ok. Roughly 5 cc = 1 tsp. I shoot for that amount, but keep in mind that not all of that will usually make it into the hedgehog.

The downside of them eating that much, is that they may not want to eat their dry food. Their tummy's are full all of the time.

You can also monitor his weight to help determine if you need to get more into him or not.
