Help! White scales under gills are spreading (pics)

Hi all,
I made a post a few days ago that my veiltail's scales were turning white under his gills. It seems to be spreading upwards to under his head. Does anyone know what this is/how I can treat it? (The pic below is him swimming downwards, you're viewing his underside.)

Is he bloated? Also, any change in his behaviour?

No change in behavior, and no bloat. (His stomach looks puffy in the picture because his fin was draping under it, so it looks like part of his underside.)

If there is no change in behavior then don't worry too much, he could just be changing colour/marbling. However, if he starts getting lethargic and not eating and general just acting odd, then we might have to look again at what's going on.
