Mbuna Hongi head turned white

I've had this guy for several months now and his head has suddenly turned this whitish color. It's odd because it's even on both sides.
He's in a 75 gallon all mbuna tank, all water perameters are good, he eats good, is active and is not picked on.
Does this look like a fungus? I've also noticed at times he uses only tail fin to swim and others stay locked to his side.
Initially, I thought because he's still a juvenile, maybe he was changing white before he changes to yellow on his head.
I've just moved him to a quarantine tank until I figure out next steps...any help is appreciated

an update...I had him in a hospital tank to keep an eye on him. His color hasn't really returned. It's now more his body has gone colorless, but he's active and eating.
