Can someone give me some insight on these strange black spots, line and dots on butterfly fish Chaetodon aureofasciatus skin on different parts of their body?

- on a forehead. This discoloration has nothing to do with this species "normal colour". About 30% of this species individuals at Gove/Nhulunbuy area (Arafura sea, the Northern Territory, Australia) have such discoloration.
