I noticed some bald patches on Percy's back a few days ago but checked on here and it sounded like he had them as he was moulting. But now I am a little worried as they seem to have got bigger and spread and one of the patches is a little flakey. They do not look red and inflammed they are mostly white. What could be wrong? Do I need to take him to the vets??

Yes, take them as soon as possible. Sounds like skin mites.
