If you suddenly realize your hamster is getting fatter than you should separate the two and get ready for the new arrivals. If they are both females/males than you should put a mesh separate in the middle of your cage. Remember to put food in both sides! Wait a couple days then take the mesh out and see what happens. If they keep fighting do the process over again.

Could be - emphasis on could - that one is a male, one is a female, female in heat. Would separate them if possible.

If the hamster that's biting is a boy he might be trying to show hes the leader ...

Some hamsters sometimes prefer to be by themselves aka solitary

Well, hamsters arnt herd animals and prefer to be on their own. So really your hamsters should be separated or else they can kill each other.
