A healthy pig's poos are quite dry and firm and well shaped. The usual cause of misshapen poo is too much veg or some that was a little past it's best condition - some pigs can handle older veg and some can't. Best to cut out the veg until they return to normal and then reintroduce slowly over a few days in case your piggy reacts badly to one type. Daily veg for an adult pig is 50g - veggie treats to come out of this not in addition to it.

Small dry poos, sometimes in a little chain, are often the result of dehydration - check the water bottle isn't faulty, no salt/mineral lick please! If there' isn't a definite cause then a trip to the vet may be needed - better safe than sorry.
