Green cheeked conure has white lines

My Green cheeked conure has white lines/feathers but lines growing out of his head what is that? I rescued my Green Cheeked Conure Buddy in June he is going through his first molt since I rescued him, he started showing white lines coming from behind his beak feather area and on his head, he looks like an old man with a few white hairs coming out. I have never seen this he has a black head so it is very noticable, he is showing no signs of illness, eating drinking great, droppings are normal, he's active just as fun and as ever, no other changes in him other than these white lines or feathers, does anyone know what these are? Any help appreciated.
