Is it really malloclusion? Could it be something else???

My Chinchilla has a few of the symptoms of Malocclusion, his eyes seem to have a minor infection, His chest and paws are often wet and he seems to chew on his paws and he started to smell too. But i'm not sure because his teeth are dark yellow/orange, straight and short. And he has no problem eating. He also has no bumps near his cheek area. We don't have any money right now to bring him to the vet and I don't know what to do about that, I'm not sure if its really malocclusion because he doesn't have all of the symptoms.. I am really worried and in need of answers.. Can someone help me please?
Thank you

It may not be malocclusion but you need to see a vet to find out. No one here can help you with advice. Please take your chin to a vet. It sounds as though he is suffering.
