Hi, don't know where you live, but could it be a spider bite?

>I noticed tonight my 14 month old ferret boy has a swollen head.
>I checked him over to see if I could notice any major changes other than the above.
>He was his usual self, still quite happy, a little sleepy, a little wriggly, still wanting malt paste and his food, checked in his mouth - it was a healthy pink, checked his ears - a little waxy but not overloaded and I pressed around his head lightly where it looked swollen and he didn't seem to be in any pain.
>There is no swelling around his neck or his boy bits, it's just the circumference of his face. When I pressed his cheeks below his ears though he did yawn - would that signify anything?
>I also checked his and his (spayed)sister's bedding for wasps/bees - nothing. I don't think there's any way one could get in the hutch either as I have extra (fly) mesh over the hutch doors too.
>Could this be a result of a rough and tumble with his sister gone wrong maybe - like a fall?
>If the swelling hasn't gone down tomorrow I'll be taking him to the vets but I thought I would ask for opinions on here first.
>Many thanks in advance;
