He should go to the vet to get a check. It could be ringworm, allergies or something internal. A lot of cats seem to develop food allergies and loose hair. Ringworm is a fairly commom fungus cats can pick up outside. Also hair loss can be associated with things such as a thyroid problem. If left untreated, all of them can pose a great threat. Please keep us updated.

hair loss on the inner thighs can also be a sign of eosinophilic granuloma complex for which steroids are usually prescribed. Rule out ringworm or allergies first. Good luck
