Post Syrian with one very long claw?

hi everybody, i have an 8 month old (give or take) syrian female (who i decided was a boy upon getting him, so i will be referring to him as such LOL) with one extremely long back claw. it's only the one, as the rest of his claws are well kept, but the one on his left back paw looks to be almost a centimeter. i've never experienced this before. it doesn't seem to be causing him any pain, and he runs in his wheel just fine, but i'm not sure what to do about this? if anything? i have cat claw clippers, but considering he is so small, i don't really feel too good about attempting to cut the claw.

Default Re: Syrian with one very long claw?

I'd cut the claw with maybe baby nail scissors or clippers. It might get caught in something and pull the nail which can be quite painful.
