Default Dry skin and sparse quills

Hamilton is our 7 mo old. He has always been on the grouchy side, and lately been worse than ever about being picked up. The area on his backside seems to very dry (adding a bit of coconut oil to his food) and the quills appear to be sparse. Anybody else experienced this?

He needs to go to the vet. He likely has mites or a skin infection.

No sign of mites, but off to the vet we shall go. Thank you for the second opinion.
