Circular Bald Spots on Head

Hello everyone, I have a new puppy for about a month now and Monday I noticed he had two spots on his head. I found it really, really weird because I owned tons of dogs and never came across this before.

It could just be regular hair loss, and while I see and feel some hair on his 'bald' spot I am concerned. It does not appear to be dermodex or ringworm as he doesn't itch, it's not inflamated, doesn't hurt him etc, but I am concerned as it didn't grow back yet. This happened Monday, I came home and he had it. Sunday we went to the park. Here's a photo attached, not very flattering considering he wouldn't stay still.

You can always have a vet check it, but if it's not inflamed, scaly, or have any indications of infection or parasite, it could just be hair that was scraped off when he was playing. Mine was pretty rambunctious and uncoordinated when he was a puppy, and he got a couple spots on his face where he ran into wooden fences or furniture and shaved the hair off himself. But really the only way to know for certain will be a vet check.
