iPad mini - slightly loose home button

A couple of weeks ago I purchased an iPad mini and its a fantastic device. However, just a couple of days ago I've noticed that when I gently run my finger back and fourth on the Home Button I can feel its very slightly loose. Also when I shake the device I can here a slight noise coming from the area the Home Button is. Is this normal?

Pretty much - All home buttons are different, each one has different characteristics

Luckily with gestures you never have to touch it!

Don't you need it to activate Siri?

With AssistiveTouch (in General Settings, Accessibility), you can do all with the touch screen instead of the home button.
