If it's not raised or bothering him then probably not a worry. They look like pigmentation to me usually from sunbathing especially in the Australian sun it can be a bit harsh :) it isn't much to worry about but just try minimise the direct sun exposure. I know our boy loves the hot Aussie sun and just can't get enough.
A good option I have heard is people get the UV window stickers to help block out the direct sun but still let's then bake a little. We also have a cat safe sunscreen at home by Dr Zoo (Australian brand so a lot of chemists and pet stores stock it) for his ears/nose/neck when he's outside or in the sun for long period of time and he has a few light cotton shirts for sun safety haha

My two Darker boys get pigmentation spotting
My light colored boy and girl have no pigmentation spots

Does the discoloration spotting come off with warm wash cloth / coconut oil or during Baths?

For peace of mind always best to check with your vet
How old is your baby ?
