How old is your hamster? Lots of animals can get hair loss/thinning in their old age. hamsters included.

I agree if he is getting older now that could be the reason & it's not uncommon but it also looks like he may have been rubbing against something, maybe got into a habit of rubbing/scenting something that could be causing him to lose fur in that area.
