Hi there
Thanks for your query

The white patches on the face and paleness in your son look like a sign of iron deficiency anemia. I would recommend that you get his blood hemoglobin and iron studies done as soon as possible.
There can also be other causes like an organism named Mallassezia causing it. But we really need you to get his blood tests done and start him on iron therapy.

Hope I could help
