Thinning Feathers on my Parrot's head

My Parrot has pin like feathers showing on the top of his head. He seems to want to have his head scratched a lot! Any thoughts?

It sounds like he is just going through a moult, don't worry about it help him break open those nasty little pin feathers because they get super itchy

He's moulting. I'd give him lots of head rubs to counter for it as pin feathers can be painful
