    You need to arrange a visit with a vet, preferably for today, hamsters can go downhill very fast.

    I know I don’t want to stress him out even more

    I can't tell from the photo if it looks like wet tail, but what ever the problem is, your little guy has a bigger chance of recovery the sooner he gets any treatment needed, the longer you leave it, the smaller his chances of a full recovery are.

    Doesn't look like wet tail. Looks like hes got wee on himself and not cleaned his testicles properly. Wet tail is't just a wet downstairs it is extreme gastroenteritis along with diarrhea

    If you are concerned about his demeanor though definitely pop him along to the vets
