At first I thought maybe it was just tangled hair and I was gonna cut it off then the more I felt, the more I realized that it might be connected to his skin? He's 6 weeks old and lives with his brother baby who is also 6 weeks and does not have this lump. It's like a ball of glue stuck on his fur or something?

Should I be worried?

I've never been to vet before so do I need to look online for good ones? Is there a drop in vet? Do I just take him back to the pet shop for them to have a look at it?

Sorry - can't see your pictures .

If is any reassurance - boars do produce what we refer to as " boar glue " - which may be what you have noticed.


Here is an information thread ...

Yup, those screenshots look like boar glue to me.

Hey guys, thanks for all the replies. I think it was boar glue and he took it off himself after I kept touching it I think xD

There is a vet locator at the top of the page for your info.
