Quaker has a hole?

I bought a Quaker split to blue. 1 year old. I was playing with him and I noticed like a small hole in his forehead. Just like in this photo.

I was wondering if this is normal. Can someone tell me?

Bryan,
I can't really tell from the picture. Is that just a place where the feathers separate, similar to a cowlick in people? Is that your quaker in the picture or another quaker?


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

Dexter, my Quaker has that too. It kind of looks like a dimple on his head. I''m pretty sure its just a Quaker trait. Here's a pic that I think you can see it:

It is a cute feature, though.

Was the Quaker with other birds? If so, one of the other birds could have bit at his head. Does it look like a wound? Can you take a pic of it?

I too believe it could be the feather. My quakers had exactly the same thing. If it isn't that I too believe it could be an injury

A picture of it is really necessary to decide, but it sounds like a bald spot
