Hi & welcome. 

It could either be seasonal hair loss (unlikely at this time of year), an allergy (anything change recently? Cleaners, washing powders, air fresheners etc) or possibly Colour Dilution Alopecia, which is fairly common in blue dogs.

Unfortunately, if it's CDA there's not a lot you can do other than make sure his skin is healthy.

This will tell you a bit more ..

I’ve literally just posted the same. Other than my boys is worse than this. It’s the same down his spine but he does have a bald patch on the top of his head and one on his neck. Hope they answers!
