Default Kermits bald patch

So when I got kermit over a month ago now he had a little bald patch on the back of his head ( it hasn't got worse nor has it got better) I assumed he'd probably been picked on by the other birds in the cage at the pet store as the batch of budgies was all from different breeders. He doesn't scratch it more than a normal budgie rubs their heads and it isn't red either so not irritated, will it grow back or is there anything I can do to help it grow back? I've attached a picture but it's hard trying to get an actual picture of the bald part by myself.

There is a good chance the feathers will grow back when Kermit molts. Make sure he's getting a healthy diet.
A healthy varied diet is extremely important for both his health and his feather growth.

If you wish you might put a drop of olive oil or coconut oil on that tiny patch if it seems to be itching too much.

Best wishes!

Thank you. He doesn't seem to be itching it much at all, just the occasional head rub on his perch but nothing major. He's currently going through a little molt at the moment, fluffy feathers everywhere lol

I'm glad the spot doesn't seem to be bothering him.

Kermit is a cute little fellow!
