Default Dirt like substance on chinchilla paws

Ive had my chinchilla for a little over a month now, I realized that he has some kind of dirt on his paws. At first I thought it was a scabbed cut, but then the next day is was gone but now moved around on his paw. Im not sure where the dirt is coming from because his cage is fairly clean. Or maybe it is a cut, but im not sure. Has anyone else experienced this? How do I know whats happening? should I take him to the vet.

Hey I'm not as experienced as some of the other forum members here, but maybe try cleaning the dirt on his paws first. When it's clean you'll be able to determine whether or not its a cut more clearly.
