Exclamation hamster one eye closed

I noticed my syrian hamster Yamagi will have one eye open but the other one stays closed should I be concerned.

Do you notice this after he's just woke up? It's normal for hamsters to close the eye that was on the substrate. Does it look crusty or swollen? If so dab the eye with a cotton ball soaked in warm water. Best wishes

It was after he had woken up and it did open back up so i was probably worried for nothing

That's perfectly normal! My hams do that too, and I used to worry over it quite a bit. Luckily, it's nothing to worry over
