Question hamster testes possibly enlarged??

so i noticed just today my male syrian's testes seem to be bigger than normal? it could also just be me not noticing them before. i've attached photos (and one just because he's cute), theyre the best i can get with my hamster moving around and such. he doesnt like getting picked up at all so i wouldnt be able to check them. i think he's around 7-8 months old? i got him at the end of december from a pet store but he had been returned before so i'm not sure how old he is exactly.

any help is appreciated!

Looks perfectly normal to me! Hamster testicles are quite large in proportion to their body, especially Syrian hamsters.

I notice that my hamsters testicles look ridiculously large when he's on the warm side. If I make him walk across a cool surface, the testicles shrink back to normal syrian size. I think it bothers me more than it bothers him. Doesnt seem to slow him down any, and he doesn't seem to seek out cooler places himself.

The last picture is adorable!!!
I always found it funny that their testicles are so large. It doesn’t seem to bother them though... haha. I have notices that they always drag on the wheel. Now that I think about it, that is probably not good, huh. Welp, guess I should look at Charlie’s testicles now. Lol.
