My young, approx 6-7 month old, wildtype names Yoshi has developed a few white marks over the past couple weeks. (I will refer to Yoshi as "he" just to make things simple, I actually do not know the gender yet).
The main one visible is on the right side of his face, about 1/2 cm behind his eye. The other marks are down his left side of his body.
It is hard to photograph but I think it is fairly visible in these photos.
It is not Ich, but actual marks in his coloration?
Here is a video, the first few seconds you can see the mark on the right side of his face, the middle of the video you can faintly see a couple marks on his left side, then towards the end you get another glimpse of his face. He didn't like the light but its the only way to see the marks.

Hmm... My wild type axolotl has the same thing on his face but it is like a black spot with orange around it. It's been there since I got him and it's grows as he has grown. I don't think it's fungus either. He also has tiny ones on his tail but are harder to notice because he is wild type. Hopefully someone can enlighten us

It looks like it's just a couple of scratches or a scar. When you say developed though do you mean they were little and get bigger after a few weeks or you just noticed it one day?
