Default Baby hedgie, no fur

Our hedgehog is just over 6 weeks old but she still has little to no fur. Is this something that I should be concerned about? Will it eventually grow in? When do hedgehogs normally get all their fur? Or do some hedgehogs never grow fur? Thanks.

I'm pretty new to hedgehogs, too, so can't answer your question. But let's see if this will bump this back up into active posts. Any changes since the pic? I'm curious about this.

Is it normal for a baby hedgehog to have patchy fur on his face? I'm looking for another baby and have found my dreamhog (ha!). I've never had a baby so I don't know if this is normal. Seems like it would be. Is there anyone who would be willing to look at a couple pictures via PM and advise? I don't want to post pics yet since he's not mine at this point. If I get him, I will be happy to post pics for educational purposes for prospective owners.

Our poor baby hedgehog ended up having many more problems than bald and dry skin. She started losing quills by large chunks and passed away shortly after. The breeder and our family aren't sure exactly what health problems she had, but we are happy that she was able to have a good life with how short it was.
