Default Hamster's teeth visible?

I just got a new Syrian hamster (named Tater Tot) and I noticed something strange and was wondering if it was normal. When he's looking at me I can just barely see his teeth. I've checked his teeth and mouth and his teeth aren't too long and his mouth doesn't have any irritations. He is around 10-12 weeks old.
Thank you in advance!

Could it be because he is warm? He runs on his wheel A TON.

Don't think it will be because he is warm. It is likely just the shape of his mouth, or the way he holds it. Some hamsters will part their lips slightly as they look at you. I don't think it's anything to worry about.

That's normal. Some hamsters have longer teeth than others, and their teeth continuously grow so they change lengths at seemingly random times. I wouldn't worry
