Default Question about fur behind ears

Just wondering what is normal in terms of how much fur/skin there should be behind the ears before the quills begin! I can't find any good photos of this area and I'm just curious. (Of course, I would like some standard to compare my baby to.) thanks!

Not a whole lot immediately behind, but it starts up again quickly. I could only find 3 photos where you can kind of see, but I can try to get a good one later. In all other front facing and above photos, you can't tell at all. So, there shouldn't be a bald spot by any means, but it may be a little bit thinner there.

Well there should be a little gap between the quills and fur. I thought Thorne was losing a LOT of fur behind his ears because there was a bald line/patch between the fur and the quills on both sides, but it's normal. I've attached a picture I took of Thorne's ear today, he is losing fur on his belly but his ear fur isn't falling out, it's just clumping up so it looks a little sparse. The bald space between the fur and the quills is normal.
