Hi there and
to the forums!
It's great to have you with us, your budgie is adorable and we'd love to meet his friend soon, too! What's his name?
I agree with FaeryBee that there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with him at this time, but if he becomes lethargic and stops eating, then his lack of feather preening could indicate a problem and you should take him to the vet. However, I don't think there's nothing to be worried about. Surely as he finishes his moult, he'll preen the offending feathers back into order
Meanwhile, you've come to the best resource on the internet to learn even more about budgies!

) on the forums.
