New Rescue, tiny & I have several concerns

I just brought this tiny fella home with me yesterday from my local pet store. She has agreed to let me foster this baby, but if all goes okay, I'll be keeping him. I'm an experienced owner & his temps are 115 hot basking 111 uvb is reptisun t5. Paper towels substrate. Humidity level I am just worried about him. I see slight mbd but I'm sure with proper lighting & supplements it will be fine. at the store he kept rubbing his face on everything & digging at it, when I got him home under his light I saw a long hair coming from his mouth. I gently pulled it out. Didn't seem to get stuck on anything & came out smoothly. I've given him a bath, made a nutritional slurry with vitamins, probiotics bee pollen, protein, calcium & such. He loves to eat & will willingly tear up some newborn mealies. I put some raw honey on it & it seems to look a little better. Can I attach a video because I'm concerned as to what he is doing sometimes with his throat. & Also sometimes he randomly wiggles from the head down. No twitching of any sorts.. kinda like he's swimming..

I didn't. & Okay. The more I watch, I think he may have an uri. I've raised temps since .. & am gonna keep warm through the night. My vet is 2 hours away & I have no emergency vet so I've yet to be able to speak to anyone.

Can your hear popping or crackling noise or is there any mucous coming out of his mouth or nose? If you can post a video w/ sound that would be really good

Definitely popping. I have a video ready. I don't see any mucous. But he also opens his mouth & licks after doing this in the video..

It may be just the start of a slight R.I but with proper temps. + being warm at night [ around 80-82 ] it could clear it up. Be sure that any slurries is eaten slowly, with time to swallow so that none is aspirated.
