Baldnss

I have a baby pineapple conure that is about 12 weeks old. He is fully feathered except for a spot on the back of his neck. I don't see any new feathers coming in and there don't seem to be any feather follicles there? Will new feathers be growing in or should I be concerned?

Young bird bald on back of neck

I would expect new feathers, but without an exam I cannot say for sure. Some mutations have feather issues. You should have him looked at in case this is a dermatitis.
