Curls his tail?

I rescued a rat a few days ago and I've noticed something odd about him. He curls his tail a lot. Even when I had him outside of his cage, free to roam the bathroom. I dont have any pictures of him, so yay paint program.

I've never seen a rat do this before, so I thought it was maybe he grew up in a small cage? I don't know what kind of cage he lived in originally.

My roll around ball is very large....I got either the largest or close to the largest one they had. He fits really well in it and has a lot of space...He can walk around a bit in it and it won't roll because it's very large.

I'm actually pretty new to rats and I am definately not an expert so anything you guys can tell me really helps. My rat might be too big for it when he is older , but right now I think it works for him.
Heh. All my boys absolutely HATE those things. They're terrified of them.

So I took the one we have and put washclothes in it and hung it in the cage... It's now a hidey bed. :)
The roll around balls? They make a good bed.
