I have two male rats about 7 months old they have Been together since they were baby’s and have never had problems together before but recently my more dominant rat has been nipping at his cage mates ears he has some small scabs on his ear but nothing major I have also noticed the more dominant rat (cheese) has been pinning his cage mate (toast) a bit more. Should I be worried about this behaviour and is there any thing I can do to stop the ear nipping

This is around the age that rats start showing signs of hormonal aggression. Keep watching them and make sure the fights don't go too far(drawing blood). You may have to neuter your boy sometime in the near future.
