Cough or stretch ?

My Beardy is 9 weeks old . He last finished shedding a little over a week ago when we first got him. Today we noticed him scratching his face a lot so I figured he’s ready for another but then tonight we noticed him almost cough ? My adult Beardy used to stretch his belly and beard during shed but it didn’t look like this. I tried to upload a video but I couldn’t get the image uploaded to upload it. He’s not gaping . He just blows up his belly a little a few times and then smacks his mouth and licks his lips . But sometimes it looks more like a cough or gag.

Here is a link to a YouTube video of it

They can all do a weird hiccup or cough now + then , sometimes after eating or drinking or just randomly. It's fine as long as he doesn't do it for days in a row or start breathing heavy, etc.

That’s what I was hoping to hear !! He’s scratching his head all over all day and was being fussy with feeding so I figured he was in shed and was ready for some strange behaviour. He’s just so tiny & delicate he’s got me on edge lol . He’s very active And bright & seems to have stopped doing whatever it was . Thank you for the peace of mind !

I love those markings . :) I was just looking through old pics from 8-10 years ago and some babies that I hatched looked so similar, if I can find them I'll post one.

Hello,

I agree, it looks pretty normal. They can sure do some crazy things, as well as worry us to
death too! He should be perfectly fine. :D
He sure is a handsome boy!
