Is it normal for a down comforter to get really flat at the top, up at the top of the bed by the pillows?

I have a down comforter (it's the second one I've owned). The top part of it (the part up by the pillows) is almost completely flat, presumably from being grabbed/handled/pulled a lot. The rest of it isn't so fluffy either but the part at the top of the bed by the pillows is the worst. This comforter isn't that old, and I've tried fluffing it in the dryer but it doesn't make a difference for long, if at all. Does this happen to other people too? Is this just normal when you have a down comforter, or should I be buying a better quality comforter or something? I thought this one was pretty good - it wasn't cheap at all - but maybe I should be getting something better?
I'm trying to decide if I should stick with what I've got, buy a new down comforter, or buy something entirely different like a non-down comforter or a quilt. Thanks!
