Mice and other rodents usually hump each other to establish domination. It's perfectly normal for one to be humping the others. Be sure that they are all the same sex, though, as male mice can hide their testicles. But if you are 100% sure that they are all the same, then it must be domination issues.

You beat me to it, hehe. Yes, this is exactly what I was going to say. it is fairly easy to sex mice if you have one of each in front of you, so you may just want to gently lift their behinds and take a quick look. But I think you should be fine!

we compared them 2 males when we chose them. and quite a few people said they were females.
The one who is doing it does seem the dominant one...
