Mollie with scales missing on head

My creamsicle lyretail mollie is missing a few scales on her head. Could the male be beating her up or something?

She could also have run into something. I find though, regular mollies do tend to be more aggressive, and head on with their attacks, or even sneak attacks. Are her fins tattered at all? How many females do you have, how many males do you have, and what size of tank?

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

I moved them into the 29 gallon today, I have two females and a male. The male is kind of agressive

Hmm try getting two more females, it'll lessen the aggression. I find, if you have 3 females to a male or more females to a male, there is less aggression.

lol. I like balloon mollies. Between their funny appearance, their soft algae eating mouths (mine could never do damage to anyone ) and their friendliness makes me love them :3
