Hey,

It could just be that he’s not shedding.
I’ve looked after these little guys before and that has happened alot. Wait until he’s done shedding and see if anything happens.

If not then give him a warm bath, they enjoy this, it relaxes the tummy muscles and also stimulates bowel movement. Rub his belly a little, this has worked for me before.

If this doesn’t work, I’d start worrying. He could be impacted, and this can be sometimes be lethal. Take him to a vet if bathing him hasn’t worked and he hasn’t pooped since or after this.

Best of luck with the little guy!
Jayde.

Try to make him a sauna.line a Tupperware with warm damp paper towels and punch holes in the lid for adequate ventilation .
