Default Hedgehog Skin / quill loss?

My hedgehog, Cami, is about 7 months old. I notice when she spikes up and her quills are criss-crossed, her skin is visible underneath. This is only when she spikes up. When she's completely relaxed, I can't see under her quills. My question is: is it normal to be able to see skin when she's puffed up? Note, I have never found a stray quill in her cage.

Yes, it is completely normal to be able to see the skin between their quills when they are upset. However, you'll probably have a hard time getting to the skin with their quill fortress in the way.
