Default milk snake rubbing face

Hi, i have just bought a new hide for the cool side in my milk snakes enclosure ... after i put it in he hasnt been anywhere else except near the hide and keeps rubbing his head against it ... is this normal as im sure he was not doing this before i changed the hides ... he is not in shed and i cannot see any mucus which makes me think it isnt a RI

is this just because its a new hide or something a bit more sinister?

could still be in shed. they go 'into blue' if ya like, then a few days later eyes clear up. your snake could just be starting to get his new skin on the go
