Unhappy Sold to me as a Common Asian Toad/ Black Toad...

I bought this guy a few months back and he was sold to me as titled. But the black coloring on his face has since.. disappeared? I'll be posting a side by side. I'd love to get an ID on this one, since I've been keeping humidity quite high since the care sheets on Asian toads are a bit different than Common american toads.

So when I bought him he looked like this:

And he now looks like this:

The white crest around his eyes used to be black. I know they can change colours, but I thought that was super drastic. Any ideas?

He also took quite a fall today from my hands... Was wondering if he'll be okay. No signs of broken limbs, hopps around fine, but is a really picky eater so I won't know if he will deteriorate overtime from the fall.

Now that's weird. Hopefully someone who knows more about Asian toad species can chime in.
