It could be an allergy or even dust up his nose. What is he bedded on? has he had a new type of hay recently? If it continues I would get him checked by a vet.

It might be dust up his nose. Toby, one of my foster boys gives the odd sneeze when he roots around in his tray of hay, but his nostrils are clean and breathing normal. Keep a close eye and get a vet check if you are in any doubt. Basil shares the same hay tray, but has never sneezed!

My two only sneeze every couple of weeks or so.

If it is everyday then I would recommend a vet visit.
