Hillstream Loach - Bald patch ???

Well, the two hillstreams have lasted a week and are doing really well (I think !). They are loving the current that I have running and seem to be moving around OK. Haven't actually seen them eat, but the tank has algae in it so they might just be feasting on that at the moment.

BUT one of them looks like it has a bald patch, it is the only way I can describe it, right on the top of his head it is bald. I can't see any other problems with it, all the other fish seem to be well with no signs of disease, so just wondering if anyone has come across this or whether is anything to worry about.

Thanks
