This young pigeon was found a while ago with with few yellow feathers still on him, it was fed with bird formula. He's eaitng on its own for a while now and is a good flyer. He's otherwise healthy, droppings are normal. But I'm wondering is this bald spots around cheeks, chin and around beak normal? Like feathers won't grow there. I have never seen anything like that before. Should I be worried?

That can be a symptom of canker. Have you checked inside his beak and back of the throat for yellow growths?

Yes I checked but everything looks normal. He eats normal amount of food, gaining weight like it should, poop looks very healthy, he drinks normal amount of water, he's very active, flying very good. Looks like very healthy pigeon except this feathers.
