It looks like grime buildup from body oils. What do you bathe him with and how often?

My boy is almost identical to your kitty and he has the same thing. I have never been able to figure out what it is. I’m guessing it’s just changes in pigmentation, like freckles. He does seem to get more of it in the summer when he is out and about in the garden. But does not present like excess oil or dirt. We did think in the beginning it was a buildup, however could not be removed when bathing. It may seem alarming and potentially unappealing, however it has not been harmful for us, or indicative of a greater issue.
