Default Small bubble-like thing in lip

I just noticed this today but my winter white dwarf hamster has a small bubble-like under his bottom lip. It look like a wart or something that's filled with pus. What should I do?

It sounds like a vet trip is in order. If you can post a picture, someone can tell you what it might be but only a trip to the vet can tell you after having a proper look and they can ores robe treatment then too. Hope he's ok

He seems to be acting like everything is fine. And I haven't changed anything either.

Hamsters don't always show if they're struggling. And it may not be causing him problems yet but if it something that worsens it could give him trouble eating. It may be a simple case of antibiotics are all that's needed but as I said before, that would require a trip to the vet

It sounds as though it could be a small cyst, abscess or something similar.
As velma said hams are very good at hiding any signs of pain or illness but your ham may need a course of antibiotics to clear it up or at least a check by the vet just to be sure what it is & what to do about it.
