He may just be molting.. or could have mites. I would take
him to the vet. Erlier this year someone who had a budgie
had this happen.. it went on for a few weeks untill the
birds illness was apparent. Remember birds will hide there
sickness appearing normal like their other flock mates..
untill its tooo late. When a bird shows that it is sick.. it
is usually too late...
