When I was a little girl my mum had goldfish and I remember quite a few of them turning white as well. I've no idea why it happens unfortunately, but they all went on to live for a long time afterwards, and it certainly didn't affect their health so I don't think you've anything to worry about.

What are your water parameters and what food do they eat? I was under the impression they do change colors as they develop and depending on the diet they eat.

all goldfish r capable of changing colour throughout their lifetime. my dad has a silver 1 and hes turning gold. its completely normal, and probably in the genes i would say.
