Hello everyone, I'm sorry if this is the wrong category to post this in but I'm becoming a bit worried.

It looks like my turtle is sick. I have had it for about 2 weeks and in the last 3-4 days I've noticed that he keeps his right eye almost entirely closed now.
The right eye looks to be swollen a bit (at least compared to the left eye) and I'm not sure why - I will take him to a vet tomorrow but I would like to have a few opinions from you guys since you have a lot more experience.

I am not using chlorine water for him so hopefully that's not the issue.
I will also try to take more clear pictures tomorrow.

Let me know if you have any guesses as to why this is, thank you!
