Default Skin changing color?

Today I noticed a whiteish patch of skin on my 1 year old hedgehogs face that was previously the same color as the brown banding on his face. I’m worried sick and it’s the middle of the night. I’m attaching a picture of what he normally looks like vs. what I found tonight. He’s acting normally and was running on his wheel as usual when I got him out to play. It doesn’t appear bumpy or like he’s losing hair but I’m very worried. Has anyone dealt with this or know what it is before I can get him to the vet?

I can’t really tell, but is it a loss of hair in that area or kind of a white skin issue? Also, does he happen to be quilling?
