Lose hair in front of both ears

Hello, this is my first time owner of Maltese. I am wondering if it is common, I start noticing lose hair and darken skin, right in front of both ears. Please see picture. I am thinking to bring her to vet. From front of the face, lose of hair is not obvious, her hair from forehead and eye push back and the ear lobe forward. Many thanks if anyone could share similar experiences with your babies, much appreciated.

Sorry but have not seen this before. I would take her to the vet & ask for a thyroid panel to be done on her. Let us know what you find out. Good luck!
Has she been scratching much? If her ears are itchy, that could cause her to scratch and abrade the skin and damage the fur.
