White spot on black goldfish head

I'm not sure if these black goldfish have the white spot on their head normally. But now I saw it after couple days I brought then home.

Please see the attached picture. It is kind of hard to see, but I circle it, so it us easier to see.

Is it normal for these black goldfishes to have the white spot on their head. I have 2 black goldfish, but the other one with the lighter white spot on their head.

It's not uncommon for goldfish to change color.

Does it look like a spongy growth? Or does it look more like the scales have turned white in that area? I can't really tell

So many fish/plants/inverts to keep, not enough aquaria.

I'm not sure if the scales turn white since I hardly see the scales. I think the skin turn white, it now back to black.

Not sure why his head changed color and back to normal now.
