Default Thinning hair patches on head!?

Me and my boyfriend noticed teddys hair on his head is very thin, just as me and my mum where putting him to bed about half hour ago we noticed patches that have got thinner, he doesn't seem to itch them and they don't look sore, just very thin, not bald, just thin. What could this be? It looks like he is going bald :/ he is at the vets Friday for his final jabs but now I can't stop worrying as I googled it and see all sorts of things from mange to allergic reactions to alepecia. He acts completely normal and everything else seems normal


He is about 11 weeks old

I just found this picture, a few days old but you can see on the rigt side how it is thinner? He now has a couple patches like this also maybe worse. I can't take a picture right now because he is fast asleep in his crate! Lol




Also I thought I'd add could it be allergies? He does bite his paws/legs alot and recently his eyes have been watering and he also has very thin hair around eyes?

Frida has this and our vet says it's normal- kind of like Chihuahua pattern baldness? Ask your vet if you're worried, though!

Kind of right in front of the ears and above the eyes right? Mine has it on both sides.

I just noticed that you can see it in this pic on my chi. It's like that right? Snuggle in her new bed.

Ike has very thin hair in the middle of his head, around his eyes and ears.

Thanks so much for the replies I have had a hectic day! It does look like stars, around the ears but he also has it starting to happen in patches in the middle :/ ill ask vet on Friday I really hope it's normal, he has only had one testicle drop down so I really don't want anything else wrong with my baby!

Tiki has similar spots on her head near her ears and I'm a bit concerned about it. I plan to talk to the vet about it when I go in too. Let me know what your vet says
