Default Weird looking spots on quills?

My hedgie's quills look funny. I mean, aside from the normal band of pigment, there are random specks that are on it. I hope you can see it properly in the picture.

Can mites do this? Has this ever happened to any of you?

Are you talking about the really thin bands and specks at the tips of the quills? I think that's just part of the coloration. My hedgie has some of those

My albino hedgie also has small spots of coloring on his quills. I think it's normal, my guy does not have mites or any health problems.
