5 month hairloss?

My son was born with a thick full head of hair and didn't lose any of it. He breastfed exclusively til about 3/4 weeks ago, and is now on formula. his hair atrted falling out a few days ago, but it is coming out very fast and only on the sides. he is basically skin bald on the sides. I'm wondering if this ok or if maybe he has a nutrient deficiency
