Does he have bald spots? How many quills is he losing? Hedgehogs do lose some quills normally, but it's usually only a few and not noticeable.
They can lose quills from poor nutrition- what are you feeding him? He might be missing something in his diet.
Mites or ringworm are the only two other things I can think of, but he would be scratching.
