Default Purple area on Alff's belly?

I was playing with Alff and he stretched out of his ball in my hand and I noticed a big purple shplotch on the center of his belly. He's albino, so I don't know if it's just the lack of pigment but just to be safe I figured I'd check and see if that was normal.

Can you post a picture? What does the purple area feel like? Is it hard, soft, feel like a lump. It may be an internal organ showing through but it also could be a tumour. Is this the first time you have noticed it and how old is he?
