This is Prescott. I just adopted him today and I just realized he is making a strange sound when he breathes and it seems heavy (you might need to turn the sound up). Is this an infection of some kind or should I wait a little longer? He is very curious and doesn't seem lethargic or seem to struggle breathing but I'm still concerned.

The video is kind of hard to see. They typically try not to show signs of illness as a means of self preservation. If it is an infection, you probably wouldn't see clear behavioral signs until it has really progressed. I would take him to the vet to get him checked out, especially if you have other rats at home.
