Leopard Gecko Eye Problem?

I was looking for some advice for my gecko. I noticed today that one of his eyes looks a bit odd and misshaped. I didn’t notice it yesterday. It doesn’t look too serious, but I’m still wondering if i should be concerned or if this is something ‘normal’ that will go away.

He lives by himself in a 20 gal long with reptile carpet as the substrate. He has a couple decorations, but I don’t think any could have poked his eye.

i appreciate any info ^^

It's possible that there's a little piece of shed that is stuck under the eyelid and is irritating and causing the odd shape. There could be an infection and if so, the irregularity will get more pronounced and there may be swelling or pus (vet visit needed in this case to get antibiotics). It's also possible that this is an abnormality of the eye-lid and you just didn't notice it before.
