Weird "scar" on head

On the top of my betta's head is a bit of a scarring... almost looks like the scale has been rubbed off. I know he's had it for over 2 months, and I only really noticed it lately because I replaced the lighting for the aquarium Monday.

I adjusted the contrast/brightness a lot so that you are able to see it... normally, he's a darker blue, and that top part of his head is almost black.

What can this be?

He's not doing anything weird or anything out of the ordinary.

My new Betta has a similar spot on his head. His is more of a small black diamond, but I am curious as to what happened as well.

It seems like it may be marbling to me... I have had boys like that. Seems normal, as long as there isnt any fuzz or stuff coming off of it, it should be fine.
