Default Black skin pigmentation around belly

So I've noticed on Archie that he's got darker skin around his belly, and he's never had it before (well not that I've noticed)
I haven't noticed any thinning of hair around the area.
Do I need to be concerned?

Mine did the same thing when he was younger. He was almost pure white at 10 weeks and his fur and skin started to darken as he got older.

Looks normal to me, skin and coat will darken with age.

Yep, Gizmo and Finley both have the same sort of patchwork skin on their bellies as well
