Mini Aussie Fur Coarse And Wiry Down His Spine

We have a Miniature Aussie pup that is now almost 10 months old. This is our first experience with a Mini Aussie.

His hair is very soft and smooth everywhere except for down his spine. There it is very coarse and wiry. Some good friends of ours have two Mini Aussie's out of the same parents and theirs has very soft hair on their back.

Is this something that will change as he gets older? Is there anything I should be doing differently with his coat?

Thank you for your help!
