Would a scab look pale and white after six weeks?

My 2 year old son came home about 6 weeks from his grandmas house with a bump on his head that turned into a slight dent with what I thought was a scab. Nobody claims to know if he in fact bumped his head. But this morning I noticed that the scab was still there. I combed it out and to me it looked like some sort of psoriasis . His hair came out along with the scab without any tugging or pulling. And now my son has a small bald spot on his head the size of a nickel. The skin looks fresh and pink. After 6 weeks would the scab look pale and white? And come out with the hair intact?
