Red face White betta turning red?

My little betta fish Puddin' was pure white when I bought him

First he looked like this:










Then this:







Here he is now:










ANYBODY KNOW WHY?
Could it be the red gravel or that he's maturing?
Guess I'm glad I didn't end up naming him snowflake

I can't say for sure, but it appears that the Cambodian genetics of your fish are starting to appear. White bettas carry Cambodian, red loss, and non-red. Sadly, the majority of white bettas will start having some red wash by 1 year of age. By the way, I like the nice even caudal lobes on your doubletail!
