It's flaking, it does look a little brittle though going on the wavy edge to.

Some say flaky/peeling is normal others say possible calcium/vit a or methionine problems.

I've only ever noticed it when I had mine on a different pellet that I felt was nutritionally poor.

I'd say what's the diet and when was the last well bird check with blood work.

Beaks grow constantly like nails
Seed fed birds are more prone to overgrown beaks too
I provide them all with a stone perch to keep it rubbed down :)
And plenty wooden toys too
Your birdies beak looks fine to me xx
