Discoloration/redness on my betta's head... help!

I noticed this past month that my betta fish has what seems like a rosy discoloration on his face. It looks really blotchy, and textured. I don't know what might be wrong with him. I perform 50% water changes weekly and test my water every few days.

He lives in a 5 gallon planted tank that is kept at 80 degrees F. I feed him one betta pellet a day and sometimes some dried blood worms for a treat. I let him fast one day a week.

I tested the water parameters and there is 0 nitrite and nitrate, 0 ammonia, 25ppm water hardness, 0 chlorine, 120ppm alkalinity and a pH of 7.2.

I attached some pictures of the redness, as well as a before picture.
