What you are describing sounds like facial alopecia, which has no cause, but is also not harmful. It usually is more apparent in long hair cats, and is just a thinning of the hair from the ear to the eye. My Maine Coon has it too, and it is perfectly normal.

I hope that helps put your mind at ease.
I like natural foods, such as Natural Balance, but this condition is not known to be caused by diet...so I am sure he is just fine! If you have any concerns, let me know, I would be happy to discuss!
