Default Split edges.. on quills?

So, I've taken my hedgehog to the vet last week. He sadly had mites but he had no signs and symptoms. But I took him anyways cause I was convinced, and what did ya know, he did have mites. So he got his first dose of Revolution.

His quills on his head, looks... interesting. The vet said it is most likely due to the mites, but I can't seem to find this info anywhere. So I'm not talking about his quills separation down the middle of his head. If you look closely (it's very hard to get on camera, since it's so hard to see), his quills have little splits on them. So if you look closely at one quill, you can see it split, kind of like split ends on human hair. I describe it as quill-split ends. Not sure if it's the mites or it's common..? Can anyone else attest to this?

-other info: he's about 14-15wk, I think he's nearing his quilling period. When I first got him, he dropped a lot of quills, but it's been far less frequent, maybe 1-3 quills every 3-4 days.
