The scent gland can sometimes look wet, but it is normal and nothing to worry about. He may be using one side more than the other. Which could be why only one side looks wet.

The wet look is the oil/scent coming from the scent gland.

That all looks pretty normal to me, our previous Hammy "Forrest" his scent glands would often be damp with scent oils, nothing to worry about..

That's completely normal. Scent glands can become oily when they're obsessively marking things. They can also look wet if they've just groomed it. Either way, it's perfectly normal
