Help Betta with pale face

He is usually balck on his face and body but today I noticed he's looking quite pale on his face especially under the face which looks white.

It does't look fluffy like fungus it just looks like when the colour has drained from a person when they're ill.

The tank is a 5.5 gallon and is heated and has a filter and is fully cycled.

Is he acting normal otherwise? Swimming around ok? Not clamped?
Sometimes when they're resting, I've noticed their faces get pale and even body colour gets lighter... It could be something just temporary.. At least I hope so. :)
