Third Eyelid

What does it mean if a dog's third eye lid is up a bit? Spencer had some goop in his eye so I wiped it off then he was scratching his face a bit, now his lid keeps coming up and he starts to squint a bit. I went in the light to take a good look at it, and it went back down. He seems fine and not bothered by it.

Could it be that he got something in his eye or that he might have scratched it? Should I be worried?

I would take a good look at it and if it looks irritated at all, head to the vet (I don't like messing with eye things...). If it's not too bad, I'd put him in observation for a while and see if anything develops (like irritation or more scratching..).
