SO, I have my three accidental litters, and I moved Calli's runt to Pip's litter because she had the smallest litter(8 pups including Runt)..

I was looking through my pictures, look at Runt compared to his actual siblings...
First picture is 3 of his actual siblings:
Hairless mouse? Runt..? Sibs10
The White/lighest one is Runt:
Hairless mouse? Runt..? Pippup13

Is it possible for him to be hairless/just have sparse fuzz?
Because I put him into a younger litter is he growing at their rate?
Is it possible for him to plateau growth until the others are catching up to him..?
Could size/growth be based on the biological mothers milk production?

Is this a point where I should consider culling him..?

Some mice can be hairless, yes. But I'm not entirely certain how likely it is to get a hairless mouse if neither parent is hairless. You'll have to ask a breeder.

That's what I was thinking, it probably can't be a thing because neither parent is..

But I still don't quite understand the maturing/lack off...

I would think that his development is just slow because he's a runt Sad Poor little guy. I think moving him with the smaller litter was a good idea. Hopefully he just needs more time. Is he feeding okay and otherwise healthy-seeming?

From the photo, he has more hair than the others in his nest because theirs hasn't come through yet.  Looks like they will quickly outgrow him, though.

If you think that he is suffering at all, it would be kind to euthanise him.
