Rockos nose hasnt got green in it anymore but now it looks blocked im gonna look it up and tell me what you think it might be and is it unusual does it need to be treated by a vet and also I was thinking that the green bit on his cere could have been from touching of poop.

Yes, try some steam. Usually it loosens blocked nares
Your right it worked his nose (nares) are cleared out now it was mainly only one that I was worried about but the other cleared out too.Do Tiels always get blocked nares.

No, but sometimes he just get a little dry skin stuck in them. I can see it moving when they breathe. Most of the time it comes out no problem. Other times there is a much larger obstruction in there and a vet can flush it out with a solution, but that doesn't happen much at all

If my guys don't get a shower for a while, their nares tend to get a little blocked. They try to pick their noses but that just sends them into sneezing fits, lol. Seems quite uncomfortable. A bath/shower always fixes it though. :)
