What is this spot? (picture)

I'm not sure if he has had this since I bought him, but it has me wondering if it is serious.

I've always thought it was just a slight color change. The brown/rust color isn't the true color, my camera sucks and its light sensor changed the picture. His colors are bright, like my avatar. He has the reddish/tan spot on his head.

The scales are there and look fine. He is a red and blue fish, and the spot has a reddish tint, so I think maybe it is just a random spot.

I am also thinking that maybe at some point something burned him? But I've never used any chemicals or soaps on his tank or decor.
