A flaky cere is completely normal in budgies it's nothing to worry about.

Ok, this is not entirely accurate.
A flaky cere can also be an indication of scaly mites, which needs to be treated with Ivermectin (or similar) by an avian vet.


Thank you so much for informing me, as well as quelling my worry about his cere 💖 I feel so much more relieved knowing it's natural
Has your bird ever been to an avian vet?

He has not yet. The avian vet is quite a long way from me so I'd have to go on bus. He isn't hand trained and he panics if being moved so I was planning to wait until he becomes more comfortable with me first
Give them a call and see if they’ll do a virtual visit?
They may be able to make a determination based on pictures and/or video.
