From what I can tell, your bebe is in for a heavy molt on his face. He's gonna be super grouchy and need extra nutrition during this time to help him grow his new feathers! Read up on the stickies, and I recommend adding 1/8 tsp of chia seeds to his diet for the good omega-3 oils to help with those feathers.

I'm not familiar with your brand of bird seed, but I live in Canada and a lot of times different countries have different things so I'm not surprised. However, those black chia seeds are exactly what I was talking about! Just 1/8 of a tsp, not very much at all, will help with feather growth.

Here's the sticky on molting: https://www.talkbudgies.com/your-bud...ting-faqs.html

Every budgies goes through a molt now and then.

I’m not sure that it’s a molt.. do you see him dropping body feathers? If the head is molting that badly, you should see evidence of molting on the body too.

Did this happen all of a sudden? When you observe your budgies’ interactions with each other, how do they usually get along?

If it is a molt I would expect to see some evidence of little pin feathers poking out of the bald spot, I don't see any in the picture are there any there? Is he rubbing his head on anything persistently?

The area does not look good, however, I do not have an exact answer for you. I have had a bird that had that missing feathers look, without a fight, Do keep a close watch how your budgies get along.

From what I can see, that does not look like a molt.
I believe your budgie has been plucked by one of your other birds.
Can you post a full sized picture of the area on his head rather than a thumbnail?

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as Imgur and follow the steps in these instructions:
How to Post Full Size Pictures from a Photo Sharing Site
You can practice uploading pictures in the site’s “Test Forum:

I'd suggest you separate him into a cage of his own for now until it is determined if he is being plucked by one of the other birds...
