Question Betta missing scales on the top of his head.

Hello all, ever since I've had my little Tales, I noticed he had a few missing scales at the top of his head. I'm wondering if this is a problem or nothing to worry about

Ok,ok so I had this same exact problem with my betta, and I found that he was just bumping into things. Don't worry, it will grow back. -though I must warn you, it will be a slightly difrant color and will take several months to grow back- my little Sparkey is very reckless and tears his fins and bumps scales also. But everything will grow back with time.

If you look closely on my avatars pic. By his head and towards his middle, those dark scales that seem out of place were knocked off, but they grew back.

Mine did this twice. He jumped up when I was about to lift the lid to feed him and he scraped a lot of scales off. It freaked me out cause it was bloody, but its healing nicely and his scales are growing back.
