bird missing feathers

My question is two in one.

First - I have a male pacific parrotlet.  He is missing some feathers under his neck.  There is a bald spot there.  I never see him bothered by it and he is very energetic.  He does not, in any way, seem sick.  What's the deal?

Second - I made a mistake when clipping his flight feathers and clipped too much.  I did not hurt him at all, but now he is missing the feathers on one end that cover his flight feathers at the tips.  Will this grow back?  It's been a couple months now and nothing has grown back.  

Poor little fellow.  He is my little baby birdie, and I don't like to see him looking so scruffy.  I have a little female pacific also and she is under a year old, and she is beautiful.
