As a crestie owner, I'd have to lean toward the Alopecia possibility as well. I only have puffs now, but the HL pattern is not like what you're describing. It's not IMPOSSIBLE though; but what I would suggest is doing one of those breed DNA tests to get a better idea. HL cresteds also tend to have dentition problems; a theorized link of some sort to the same gene that does not hold the 'hair' in; also does the same to the teeth.
Weird random fact to know: It is acceptable by the AKC standard for a HL crested to have poor dentition or missing teeth. It is NOT accepted in the powderpuff variety.
Yeah Imma nerd. But I love the naked doggies! =D
