Guinea Pig Lost Weight Then Gained

Hi, my Ollie is about 11 months old and I have noticed that he lost weight from 927g - 915g I gave him a small carrot to help him gain weight which he ate. I then gave him a couple of slices of carrot the next day but he are only the softer veg and left the carrots (he also only ate half of his nuggets). I reweighed him and he went from 915g - 935g in just 1 day. My other boar has gone from 934g - 936g in the last month so I am slightly concerned about Ollie.

Any info would be great!
