 Is my new mali sick? :(

I got this guy a week ago, I removed him from calcium sand and have put him on reptile carpet until I can find some good play sand - everyone here just sells quikcrete which I heard wasn’t great,

Anyways he’s got white around his mouth and nose ( I know it’s normal around the nose but it worries me that it’s around his mouth too) he keeps rubbing his face on his rocks, any chance he could have an URI?

He’s also been really lazy especially since I put the carpet in, he mainly wants to be in his cave

I feel kinda bad that nobody replied. But take him to the vet if he’s lethargic or refusal to eat. I truly go against sand but watch him to make sure he don’t eat it when you buy it.

A couple things I could think of.
But first, what consistency is the white stuff around his mouth?
Is it like he’s spitting up and it’s slightly bubbly?
It might also be a mouth infection, but uro’s are the hardest to get their mouth open to see what’s going on.
A picture would be better, and going to the vet would be the best.
I hope it’s not anything bad though! Maybe he’s just got so much salt build up that it’s all over his face!
