Coral beauty angel help!

I recently bought a Cb angelfish and i have him in a 155 gallon aquarium. It's just him and a clownfish in the tank. But i was watching my tank today and i noticed that the CB is missing some scales on it's head. I think this is due to him running into the LR but I'm not sure it is much worse now than it was a week ago ( more scales gone) other than that he is super healthy and swims all over happily. But I'm wondering if this is normal or if i should be concerned about infection and him ending up dead i paid 50$ for him at a LFS so i really don't want to loose him.

That is one expensive CB, I'd be concerned too. Any new fish can be jumpy. If there aren't large enough holes for it to fit into...there will be scrapes.
Missing scales can be a different thing though and actually pointing to some sort of other issue. Is it possible to get a picture?

Then I'd want to look elsewhere and point towards stress and disease.

Is it picking for food or scraping up against the rocks?

Picking for food i mean like i have said it is a very healthy active fish just has those marks on it's head and i don't see why he should have any its a 155 gallon tank with only the angel and a clown in it atm with big caves in the live rock unless he is trying to squeeze through some small holes in which case should i move around my rock?

That would most likely only happen if startled. Keep an eye on it incase it gets infected.
