Maybe refer to this? Guinea Lynx :: Hair Loss
I am so sorry that I cannot be of more help. I am sure that somebody who can offer more advice will be here shortly.
I feel so bad that you are worried about your piggy. I know what that feels like, please do not stress too much.
Help is on the way! :)

How are his teeth looking? (Just want to ensure that there is no dental problem).
Is he consistently losing clumps of hair? Could this be caused by him pulling dried boar glue off of his chin while grooming?
I wondering what this could be! :)
Someone more experienced will probably be around in a few hours (the forum is UK based and it is quite early in the morning over there!). :)

I’m afraid we can’t diagnose things over the Internet. We aren’t vets, and only a hands on exam will help. Could you borrow the money from someone - friend or relative? Guinea pigs do need vet care so you will have to find a way to get money together in case they are ill in future. I’ll tag in @Wiebke @Piggies&buns @VickiA

Hi!

What the fuzzy picture shows is a nipple. Every guinea pig has two; they look the same in sows and boars.
Guinea pig body quirks - What is normal and what not?

Please keep the hairless spot under the chin under observation and start saving up for a vet visit; severe illness and emergenies often happen sudden and cannot wait for days or weeks. You do not want your piggies to die in agony because you cannot treat a perfectly curable illness or not even afford euthanasia.
