He is probably quilling but there is always the possibility of mites. Does he scratch?
Some hedgehogs go through a quilling at a year old. If this is the case, it would be large adult quills he is loosing.

One way to tell if this is a baby quilling is to save some of the quills he looses and compare them to what is growing in. If they are small, finer quills, then he is between 8 and 12 weeks old. :)
