Question Chin Eating Fur Slip ?

Hi Everyone,

I have had my chin a little over a year and I noticed that he looses hair from time to time, just playing around and bumping into things in the bathroom. I know this is his fur slip, and that it is normal. However, after I pull the little tufts off him he tries to eat them, and will completely consume them if I let him. He has no other signs of Fur Barbing or messing with the fur in the rest of his coat. My questions are...

Is this behavior normal?
Why does he eat the hair?
If he eats the hair will it pass through his system?
Should I stop him from eating this hair?
