sounds like he might be over grooming it.
does he have a cagemate?
does he have a big cage, room to more around, a GOOD! glider wheel to run on?
do you give him toys to play with, youtube has videos for toys.
do you have some mini cups hanging around cage with a few treats in them so
he can go around and find the treats. I dont put a treat in every cup, you can
make plastic easter eggs with a treat inside, I had to cut a small opening so they
could pull them apart.
and of course a visit to a vet is always a good idea if you see a problem.
