Beardie vent looks off

So I just gave my boy a bath to help him poop, didn't take long and came out smoothly. I tend to check his vent afterwards to make sure it's clean, but I noticed almost like a yellowish bump? I'm not sure how else to describe it. It doesn't seem to be bothering him, even when I touch it. I did have to remove sperm plugs from him the other day (came out easily and he seemed unfazed) for the first time if that could possibly have anything to do with it. I just want to know if he's okay.

That could be a bit of swelling from irritation. It doesn't look concerning at the moment, but keep an eye on it for changes. If he isn't straining to poop, that's a good sign. Might be worth offering him some extra hydration though.

That was quick omg thank you!
He was straining a bit awhile back so I had to force him to eat more greens and was giving him water in an eye dropper and that helped with that problem. I'll go back to the eye dropper to ensure he's getting enough water rather than just misting and washing his veggies then.
Is there anything I can do for the swelling in the mean time or does it just take time? And are there certain signs I should be looking out for to indicate it might be more of a problem?

if your beardie is hiding or not eating or just letheargic in general then please take him to a vet but other than that the vent looks normal

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
