It does sound as if little Hyde is experiencing a "miserable" molt.
The link aluz provided should be of some help to you.
Having him checked by the Avian Vet is a good option to ensure he's doing well and to put your mind at ease.
Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.
Best wishes at the vet visit.
Please be sure to update us on Hyde's condition after the appointment.
