    I can’t really see anything too concerning.

    It looks a little puffy to me. Perhaps something has irritated it.
    What type of substrate do you use?
    What types of lights/ heat are you using?
    What can you tell us about his diet?

    Will not hurt to flush with plain sterile saline solution.

    If you are still using sand in the enclosure, that is likely the problem.
