:I was wondering if any one could help me with this one
:I have a ball that does not stick his tounge out all the way and ever once and awhile he will open his mouth like he is ajusting his mouth
:could this be any thing or am i just jumping to cunclustions
:Thanks

Sounds like it could be the beginning of a respiratory problem. Thicker mucus and tongue isn't as out and yawning to breath.....I would get him vet checked if he were mine. I would also raise humidity and temps to the top range, if they aren't there already.
