Fishes color's change as they mature.
Appear's the fish is eating as evidenced by the waste (poop ) in the photo.
Keep up with weekly water change ,provide proper food's,large enough tank for fish to continue to grow,and he/she will do well.
Many of these fishes are most active at night so dropping some pellet food,algae wafer's,bit's of krill,shrimp,or flakes after the light's are off and tank is dark,will prevent other fishes from eating it all before the pleco can feed.
Common pleco's can grow very large ,up to a foot long or better, so they need lot's of room.
They also create lot's of waste(poo), so weekly water change each week is needed to dilute,remove ,toxins which are produced if poop,food,is allowed to build up.
Fish looks fine to me.
Pleco poo to you!
