Vet took the dead skin off, put it under the microscope and found no mites, He said it's just dry skin and new spines will grow in soon. Hopefully his diagnosis is correct and I would be back for a return visit. Only other options would be a skin/fungal infection. If anything comes up I'll be sure to post.

He didn't. He told me it doesn't look like there's anything wrong and that I shouldn't worry. The breeder told me the same thing so I'll give it a little time and if it seems the condition worsens I'll make a trip back to the vet.
