Is my bird plucking?

My 2 mo old conure is missing some feathers underneath his wings and on them and I’m worried he’s plucking.
I can’t get photos of him because he’s not very comfortable with me touching his wings yet. But here’s a little drawing; 5A167F28-7C16-4212-9779-903BF615EAF8.png

Are we talking about Percy here? Last photo of him shows no problems. Wingpits are always a mess, best not to look.

Does he have wooden toys in the cage that he likes to play with? Something that might cause friction on his feathers?
He has wooden perches. As in natural wood without bark.
