Is what I am seeing normal for show budgies?

I am particularly interested in finding out what has caused the black sploches on the back of his head (for lack of a better way to describe them!). I think that he is a double factor golden face opaline dominent pied violet (or cobalt?), but I am confused as to what is causing the white cheek patches. Here are a few pictures:
