    That is strange... My best guess is that he injured himself somehow fighting or doing something else, though I'm not sure what the object you saw was. Maybe his tongue? Or is it possible that the object was something he ate, and was trying to forcibly swallow? Whatever happened, I would definitely keep a close eye on him for the next few days. Make sure he eats and drinks well.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful.
