If it was a small amount it will likely pass without issue, if enough is swallowed it can cause a blockage but that doesn't sound like the case. I would keep an eye on him for the next 24 hours or so and make sure he is eating, drinking, and pooping normally. You can force feed some critical care or just some crushed up pellets with water to help kind of push things along if you want, but that is likely not needed.
