is your cat an outdoor cat?...could he have fleas?. Also do they seem to be bothering him...itchy or does he react when you touch them as if in discomfort? You might want to take him to the vet if they seem to bother him.

It could be a number of things. I think a trip to the vet is in order before it spreads further. Its hard to tell from a photo. It could be a fungus, a bacterial infection, skin virus, allergy, flea bites or just dead dry skin.

Looks like the cat has freckles. I would consult a vet to be sure its not malignant.

Please just take him/her to the vet. It might be nothing. But If it bugs you it bugs the cat. Please let us know what the vet finds. It is great that you are so observant in the first place'! Cats can hide there illnesses, and you need to be tuned in to them as you obviously are.
