Small bald spot on the back of my head?

After my haircut 6 days ago I noticed a bald spot a little smaller than a pencil eraser or the size of a pea. I ruled out Alopecia areata because i think the spot is too small and everyone says Alopecia areata should be the size of a coin.

Heres a pic https://i.imgur.com/mOri7xW.jpg

What can this be? Thank you

It looks like a little spot where you had a scar from something- it's very normal to have a little spot like that.  When I cut my husbands and son's hair, they have spots like that as well.
