So Freddy has some bald spots near the front of the cere and at the back at the head. Whenever he molts he gets many pin feathers and never goes bald. What can I do? He is lively and happy.

What kind of diet is he getting? Maybe an increase in vitamin A might help? Vitamin A is important for healthy feathers and feather growth. If he'll eat veggies try dark leafy greens and orange vegs like carrots, sweet potatoes or red peppers.
Do you give him a molting supplement during a molt? I think it helps.
Misting and bathing will help him feel better smile

The more I think about it...actual bald spots are not normal even during a molt? During a molt, Levi usually gets a "kind of" bald spot just above his cere..more like u can see a part in his feathers there? But never any actual bald spots.
You might want to have Freddy checked out by an Avian vet. Vitamin deficiency..parasites..IDK
