Can you post some pics of the holes? I've never heard of this but it may help someone identify any problems.

Sounds like HITH disease to me. (Hole in the head.) Thought to be from not enough nutrition and also suggested that it might be due to using charcoal.
There are medications to treat this condition so I would get some and also make sure he is getting a good balanced fish food.

I wouldn't worry about the bristleworm. They are great detritivores and a real asset to your tank. There are a few different species of them and only 1 is a risk to your corals and that kind is relatively rare in the hobby.
