Exclamation Hamster scab and slight hair loss

Hi everyone! I haven't logged on here in a while!
Anyways, last night, I noticed my 1 yr old male has a small scab on his back, with some local hair loss. I am unsure what this is caused by, and whether this will need looked at by a vet.
I will be grateful for any help

Could you possibly post a pic of the place on him?

If he's otherwise fine this is often a sign that they've been rubbing against something in the cage, check the cage & everything in it for any sharp or rough edges, any tubes or something with holes in that he can't pass through easily without rubbing.
