i have two boars. the youngest is around 14 weeks old. He is getting kind of nippy around the older one when they are in a tight space together. They do like to cuddle but occasionally Pete, the baby, will nip at Chester. What should i do? They play "follow the leader" all the time in the cage and eat and sleep together. I have a large cage as well its a 6X2.
 
He may be getting to the age where he will try to assert his dominance over the older pig. As long as neither pig is being bullied to the point of weight loss, they should work it out.

Most pigs, even bonded ones, will occasionally get mad at each other.
 
Thankyou guys so much. And yes I am lucky my boars get along so well! They share food and play "follow the leader" all the time. I am hoping Pete's nipping is just a phase.
