Today I noticed my betta's black face has two white spots on the top of the head. They are not raised or salt-like so I do not think they are ich. Does this look like he just scratched his head on something and lost some scales?

If so, I don't understand how. In the tank I have sand as substrate, smooth stones and marbles, a few silk plants, a filter, heater and a cave decoration that is incredibly smooth. I even sanded any slightly square edges to round them out. SO. FRUSTRATED.

Also, he is more frequently getting white stress stripes on his face at little things and during water changes? Anyone know how to minimize stress? Otherwise he is very active and seems healthy. I'm attaching some pics of his head.
