There are many different skin conditions that a kitty can get and that's why you need to take your kitty to a veterinarian so they can talk with you and see what you see firsthand. Some skin problems are relatively minor and others are severe. A vet is definitely the way to go to find the cause of these flakes on your cat's fur and the proper treatment.
I hope all works out for the both of you.
Hello~Sounds like kitty could have very dry skin or possibly fleas.
If kitty doesn't have fleas, then diet may help. A healthy diet is the first line of defense against health conditions like dry skin. If your cat develops a dry skin issue, it’s a big red flag that it’s time to assess their diet. A diet lacking in fat, for example, can lead to dry skin in cats. A balanced diet of proteins, fats, and essential vitamins and minerals is critical when it comes to skin health. If your cat is currently on a dry diet (regardless of how high-quality it is), it’s more than likely that your cat’s dehydrated.
If your cat’s diet is balanced, nutritionally complete, and they’re getting adequate hydration, the dry skin likely stems from a different issue.
I also suggest taking kitty to the vet for an exam to rule out any issues that may be serious.
