Is it sort of on and off? Every get gunky? If so, he probably has the same as CJ, Billy, Annie, Biffy, and even Belle had it. No big deal, just when it starts to show, keep the eyes clean with a cotton ball and warm water.
oh, & Smudge is looking really handsome. i think if he loses the smudge, you'll have something to tell people when they ask his name!
