Hi!

How old is your boy? In a teenager between 4-6 months it means simply that the testicles have fully descended. They can vary in size quite enormously.

In an adult (over 15 months), sudden changes in the testicles are more worrying.

Please compare with the pictures in these guides here:

It might be a good idea to take some pictures of his testicles when he’s home to ‘refer’ to if you’re worrying they’re not looking normal.
Also sorry not sure if it’s been mentioned on your other thread but is he housed inside or outside? It has been very hot, if he’s an outside piggy then he needs to be kept inside at the moment with the heat.
