Nightmares?

Hi, so I have a little problem. This is my first post so I don't know how well I can explain things. In the midst of going to brush my teeth I noticed one of my boys, Duke was in his usual sleeping spot but what was so off was that the underside of his head was silver/white. It wasn't patchy and it wasn't in random spots so this worried me to the point where I sat with him, I noticed that his colour slowly began to come back. Do they have nightmares? He acted completely normal when I was with him.

I'm no expert but it could be, but i wouldnt worry too much. If it was a nightmare, they might be a little stressed and they can loose a bit of color cos of that. If it happens a lot it may be because of low blood flow from when he is asleep.
And as long as hes eating and doing fine, i wouldnt worry to much.

It looks like he's sleeping, when he's awake he usually follows me around his bowl. When I walked in he was still, so I'm just assuming he's sleeping. The next day? Perfectly fine, back to normal colour no white patches or anything abnormal. It's weird though.
