Default Quill growth?

Hi guys, so howies been with us for a few weeks, he's doing good, he doesn't like to be touched, feed me or go away lol anyways howie had mites when I met him at the pet store, they treated him with revolution, mites are all gone Chris and I spent hours picking lint off his quills and now, he's growing new quills! Hes apparently two years old..I wasn't aware adults could grow quills again? I'm totally clueless about quill growth I've never had a baby and Charlie's quills are always perfect looking. Could he be younger? Is it possible for adults to regrow quills after adult quills are lost?

The quills will grow back after mites are cured no matter the age

My hedgehog Molly lost a lot of quills when she had mites and ringworm (she had bald patches, poor girl). They all grew back in. And the quills don't seem to bother the hedgie like they do when they are quilling, which is nice.

Yes, Molly was my "special" girl. But she really had the sweetest temperament. Thanks- I did the best I could with her multiple challenges.
