Hamsters come in varying sizes, within their species. For example a small Syrian might only be 100 to 120g. A large Syrian could be 270g! Average is about 175g

For dwarf hamsters the weight will vary hugely too.
He can't be Syrian, because he's small. My mom saw him the first time and was very surprised how small he is and said he looks bigger on the pictures ( I usually zoom in when I take photos of him ) Mr.Bogie isn't really into cameras.
I hope he's fine. Now that I look at older photos his fur has definitely changed. He has a black dot near his eye and I'm positive it's a fur, because I checked it just incase.
His fur has definitely changed compared to the last year. At one point he didn't have fur on his stomach but now it's back. I have a lot to learn about hamsters. Hopefully ya'll forgive me. He's my first hamster.

Usually dwarf hamsters are hybrids unless from a breeder.
I don't know where my hamster is from. I just bought him from the store and he was cute. He looked sad and lonely and he was staring right at me while the other hamsters didn't. I just had to pick him. Best $4 I've ever spent. Everything else, including the cages, playground, toys were more expensive than the hamster itself.

You are doing very well caring for him and it shows.

The vet goes by a chart i think or some kind of a text book. That's like saying that all humans should weigh, let's say, between 60kg - 65kg.
I think you are right about the weigh thing. He can still move and he's active and he runs pretty fast, so I guess he's fine.

Of course. He's a family member and I love him and despite what many Google results might say, I'm pretty sure he's attached to me as well and now that I think about it, he's probably better off with me than some small children. I want him to be happy. He's sometimes chirping, but I don't think it's negative. He does it when he's asleep. Once I woke him up to see if everything's alright, but he was staring at me with his sleepy eyes, so I'm not waking him up anymore.

It definitely sounds like he chose you Hamsters do bond with owners - ignore Google.
