What would cause this strange discoloration or bruise ?

My 8 year old son woke up with what looks like speckled bruising below his bottom lip and on his chin. He had no trauma to the area, just went to sleep and woke this way. It looks as though he fell on concrete by the speckled look of it. What would cause this strange discoloration or bruise?
