please help I don’t know what is happening, is he starting molt season?
The thing is your parrotlet is a blue series mutation. Genetics are weird. He may have a few white feathers here and there for the rest of his life. I wouldn't stress about it. My grey Parrotlet would have a few white feathers here and there.

Is the white all the time or just sometimes.

My blues seemed to do this to some degree when their feathers were getting old and about to be molted and they would relax the feathers would almost turn whiteish.

Look through here. Some of these other non marbled or non pied have white feathers. I wouldn't worry too much. When in doubt. Call any reputable avian vet you can find and ask.

Well I’m not sure but the bird seller said he’s not pied plus his nail are not white. But I still don’t really know how to recognize a bird thats pied or a bird that’s not pied.
I always thought if it had white it was pied. If it's really light I'm.not.sure about the nails but I could be wrong
