Anyone know what this is??

So i just noticed my angel has some scales that look like theyre peeling off. He behaves normally. Swims good and eats good. Hes the biggest fish in my tank so an aggressor is highly unlikely. Hes a very coordinated swimmer so i doubt he brushed against anything in my tank.
Any ideas ? Should i be worried?

Is your angelfish by himself or is there another angelfish? I tend to see this on occasion in my young red koi pair as a result of them bickering.

Theres another one in there but he/she is super tiny. The size of a quarter not including the fins.

Could still be a result of bickering? I wouldn't worry about it too much unless it gets worse. I've seen angelfish missing a lot more scales heal up practically overnight.
