Sounds like you need to do a hair ring check.

Could he just be cleaning himself? My male does that quite often, and he doesn't have any hair rings.

There is no one TRUE way

ANY male can get a hair ring, breeder or non-breeder. Best to check your boys every so often!

He'll get over being mad, no worries mom.
