Budgies do have small eyes but to reply to your query one needs to see a pic. Please try to post one if you can...would be of great help in offering suggestions.

I'm anxious to see a photo as well. I have 5 budgies and one has much smaller eyes than the rest.. I hadn't really considered it as anything other than cosmetic, but I learn here all the time, so I'm glad you asked this question.
Hope you can post a photo.

Welcome to the forums!
Your budgie's eyes are fine and normal, there is no reason for concern.
English budgies all have that kind of appearance where their eyes are partly hidden by their extra fluffy feathers.

Welcome to the forums!
Your English budgie is just stunning! He's precious. What's his name?
To answer your questions, I agree with Aluz. English budgies have naturally more fluffy feathers and it can be difficult to see their eyes, making them look smaller. Some budgies look like they can't see at all!

Also, if he has actual "bald patches" he could be plucking himself due to stress or another condition. However, if you haven't actually seen him "pulling out" any feathers and he just looks sort of patchy, then it's likely a moult
I can't wait to see you and your gorgeous boy around the forums
Feel free to ask about anything you're unsure of, we'd be happy to help!

From those photos you posted, the condition of his feathers appears to be good.
Budgies, like all other birds will clean themselves daily by preening their feathers.
During preening, it's normal for a few body feathers to fall out and while moulting the amount of feathers lost is much higher too.
If you don't see him violently plucking the feathers out, and just thoroughly and gently passing his beak on his feathers during preening, then all is well.
It's very rare for budgies to be pluckers, this is usually a behaviour more noticeable on larger species of parrots.
