Hi there welcome to the forum, congrats on your new lutino I just got one as well about 3 weeks ago and she is a little sweetie ;) bald spots are a common trait in lutinos its nothing to be worried about and yes the bald spot will always be there its a genetic trait from when the lutino was first bred, mine has one a well ;)

Welcome!

I have 2 whiteface lutinos, one is 3 weeks old and one is 4 weeks old. I read about the bald spots. I keep looking at their heads to see if they have the bald spot.. lol I think their heads are perfect but I may be impartial! :p

When the lutino was first achieved there was alot of inbreeding going on to get that mutation thats why the bald spot appeared but now a days its getting less common and there are more and more tiels without bald spots.
