I’m not sure to be honest. If you’re worried you’re best off taking him to a vet. But just be aware that not all who treat guinea pigs are experienced with doing dentals (if it’s needed). I’ll tag @furryfriends (TEAS)

I think they look normal. Is the piggy eating okay? If they are I would not even be wondering to be honest, but hopefully @furryfriends (TEAS) be along to advise on those toothies

The front incisors look normal to me, but it's the teeth at the back that you can't see easily that are usually the cause of dental issues. Sometimes the incisors look fine while the molars in back will be overgrown or have spurs, causing pain and causing your guinea pig to go off their food. Usually by the time the front incisors look abnormal, the back molars are VERY abnormal. So you're doing the best thing by taking your piggie to a vet to get a good look at the back teeth! Best wishes and hope it's just an off-day for him and no issues!

Update on henry- took him to the vets and it was all okay apart from having something stuck in his mouth which was washed out by the vet and his back to normal eating and drinking😊 thank you everyone
