Only the lutinos have a bald spot unless the bird has been plucked by another bird. The bald spot in the lutino is mainly due to inbreeding.

Yes...any mutation can be prone to thin feathering behind the crest or balding. Click on the pix for a larger view. Yoy can further enlarge the pix to read the info.
