Toddler Hairloss

Hello everyone,
Can you help? My baby had quite a lot of hair and then at 11 months it has started to fall out.
He is now almost 14 months and although there is hair starting to grow underneath - I'm worried as to why this has happened at his age.
It isn't falling out in clumps - and its not alopecia.
The doc isn't sure and the dermatologist is asking his colleagues cos he's not sure either... He has no allergies - good skin and is in great health.
Am I being too worried?

Thank you

I lost all my (copious, black) hair at around 6 months, then it grew back blonde. Asking around, it isn't unheard of, and doesn't cause any long term problems, so I wouldn't worry too much.
