Hi everyone! Love this site, used it many times and finally made my own account. I have a 6 week old black sumatra that's developed a foot/leg problem. I can't seem to figure out specifically what's wrong. He limps a little bit but its not as noticeable when he's walking, more so when he's running. He doesn't seem to have full control of his foot/toes, sometimes his toes will curl up as he walks and puts the foot down or catches it on the ground or his other leg as he goes to walk on it. I've also noticed he'll lay flat on the back of his legs when he goes down to forage, eat, and drink. He'll also lose his balance and stumble a bit when he poops. Does anyone know what's wrong and how to help him?

There seems to be a bit of stiffness on the ankle area on the front of the foot where the middle toe meets the leg, can't find any injuries or swelling though

In checking again, the leg seems to be dislocated or something, the whole left leg is farther from his body than his working right leg, any help please? I don't know how to fix it without hurting him
