Default Raised brown/black lumps on side of axolotl?

Hey guys
My 3 year old axolotl Dobby has recently gained some raised brown/black bits on his side (see photos, you'll see he's always had pigment on his face)
Water is fine and he's acting completely normal.
Has anyone seen this before? Is it normal? Could it be new pigment? Also, he has black pigment on his finger tips now too. I've read somewhere this is a maturity thing?
Second image is just so you can see his face. Taken just before I got his poo out of the tank. He tries to bite me when I remove his poo. He's such a character! I love him.
