Ok, so I have a male and a female, I treat them pretty much the same, they eat the same foods, and the same amounts, they get to come out and play for the same amount of time every day, yet they are so different from one another.
My female looks to be a healthy weight, her fur is soft and very shiny, but my male looks like he is getting fat anf his fur seems scraggly and not soft or shiny at all. about a week ago he sneezed a couple of times but nothing seemed to come of it, so I figured he was fine, he hasn't sneezed since.
anyways, is it normal for him to gain more weight and have unhealthy looking fur?
They eat carrots every day, and I also give them peas and corn, grapes and apples.
Is weight gain a sign of a health problem?

p.s guess I should mention that his behavior is totally normal, I have not noticed any changes in that at all, it's just his weight that is starting to worry me...

Boys are MUCH bigger than girls most of the time. And they are far more prone to coarse, rough fur, especially if they aren't neutered.
