I am not an expert but I don’t think fat balls are very good for hedgehogs neither are meal worms sunflower hearts etc.
The best option is good quality cat/dog food, wet or dry and meaty/chicken flavour or a specialist hedgehog food.
Also very important is fresh water 24 hours a day. a dehydrated hog can’t eat.
Happy hog watching and keep us posted with how he/she is doing.
