Kinda looks like a common but I'm interested to know why the bristles have that blue gray tinge to them...

On the 2nd & 3rd from the top I sense a scar above the right eye.
Had he been wounded?

it looks like a common brown but its dark spot just at the start of the dorsal fin is not very dark, but then again, neither is the entire fish. is it always this colour or is it a bit stressed?
