Look like he have Alopecia Areata
It is nonscarring, which means that there is no permanent damage to the hair follicle. In most people, new hair eventually grows back in the affected areas, although this process can take months.
There are many treatments available depending upon the how extensive disease is:
As you are worried it is spreading then he might need some blood tests and might need oral steroids or other immune modulating drugs to prevent its further spread
I would advise to stay calm as it is not something emergency however I understand the psychosocial effects of hair loss can be devastating
If you want it quickly then better to see a skin specialist privately
