    Not really.

    Does it appear to be bothering him? Is he scratching or biting himself?

    No none of the above ... I had a baby 4 weeks ago is it possible he's anxious or something along those lines? It dosnt seem to be hurting him but I know dogs can hide pain well I just don't want him to be uncomfortable

    If he isn't biting/scratching and seems happy in himself, it's not likely that he's uncomfortable.

    I'm sure he'll be fine until he sees your Vet tomorrow.
