bald spot behind cockatiels crest

My bird seems to have a bald spot from scratching the back of his head. Does he have mites or something else?

I bought a bird bath spray today. Said it helps with healing minor dry skin irritations and molying processes. He is molting right now so he's probably scratching because it's bothering him. Hopefully I won't need to take him to the vet. Thanks for your reply though.

It is unlikely mites. You need to Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to determine what is causing this behavior. It might have a bacterial infection or even a disease.
