My little guy just went through a shed. All seemed normal however I noticed today while Bob was catching some zzzz's it looks like the eye is not shutting all the way. Does this look like some kind of stuck shed? Given near the eye I'm cautious to mess with anything. If stuck shed should I force to stay in a humid hide for a bit longer than preferred to help?

yeah it looks like it could be some stuck shed. it certainly looks like something is in there. yeah you can up the humidity to help. maybe a nice long warm bath and then gently work at it by rubbing your clean finger over the area without applying too much pressure

You could also bathe it with a q-tip and some warm water. Are you sure it didn't look like that before? If not, there may be some shed just under the eyelid. You can wet it and then gently search under the eyelid with your thumbnail.
