i dont know much about hammys but if there anything like rabbits you could bring him to the vet and get them trimmed.

Um,the pictures are a little bit hard to see,but his teeth look normal to me. They look like normal rodent teeth.

That being said you can give a milkbone or other dog treat as a treat and they help with keep teeth trim.

they look alright, but good of you to be concerned.
My dwarves love this big pellet food that keep their teeth down and it really improves their fur softness.. My petsmart feeds them to their dwarves and I bought my own bag: Kaytee Forti Diet Pro Health. They are large sized pellets but my dwarves consume about one a day they love it so much.

I use mazuri hamster pellets kaytee forti diet ingredients are lower quality my hams also get milkbones and filler free dog food. Hamster teeth are very long and easily controlled with diet
