Shimmery, silver-ish spots behind gills

I've noticed them since the day I got her, but there are these two spots on either side of her just behind the gills. I've heard that white spots aren't really a good thing, but these look more of a light light gray or silver cover. she's acting perfectly fine, swimming around, and eating and everything. Just wanna make sure there's nothing wrong with her. Any opinions?

Yeah, I believe mine is a VT as well, judging from the pictures I've seen of female VTs... Although I'm still not entirely sure whether it's male or female yet since it's still a baby, but I'm about 70% sure it's female lol.

Good to hear it's not a problem though. This is my first betta so I get kinda nervous about every little thing lol

My CT has those. They actually expanded to a whole silver area under his head and belly, it's pretty! :)
