Blue Crowned Conure with the wrong color feathers?

Hello, my name is Allison and I have had my Blue Crowned Conure "Petri" for almost a year, he himself is just about a year old and after his last molt, he started growing in some strange color feathers on his head. Typically I believe the Blue Crowned Conures have blue feathers on their heads, but this is the first time he has grown some orange and red, but just a few... I got him from Petco and was wondering if this is common with this particular bird or if he is just some sort of breeder mixup, thanks for your help...!
