Brief Answer:
Please add some more details.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear welcome to Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I see the picture you attached and he has three red circular dots on his cheek. They are not elevated from skin level and they don't seem like allergies or insect bites or any specific pathology.
I want to know some more details like if he has any others on the other parts of body.
Does he suffer any known pathologies?
Did he use any object and accidentally did it?
How long has he been with them and did they increased in number with time?

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you!

Today, it looks the same. No other spots on his body. Just these 3 circular marks. They appeared yesterday. They do not look like bug bites. And they do not bother him. He wasn’t laying on anything. No indentations. It’s weird! And my apologies for asking the question twice. I’ll attach a picture from this morning.

Doesn't seem pathological

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear thank you for asking again.
I see the other picture and they remain the same today.
They don't seem like insect bites, allergies, skin problems or something pathological at all.
He possibly did them with something.
