I'm going to venture a guess here. If the bird was all white before but now has a pale brownish tint on its primary feathers, tail feathers, and maybe even on the back, it's a cinnamon whiteface lutino. When cinnamon and lutino are combined it makes a little bit of the melanin color come back, and it's more noticeable in adults than in babies.

You seem to be right. How one can distinguish between fallow and cinnamon?

Test breeding is the only way to really be sure. If the bird is male, you can put him with any hen, and if he is cinnamon lutino then all the daughters will be cinnamon lutino. If you put him with a cinnamon hen who is NOT lutino, all the daughters will be cinnamon lutino and the sons will be visual cinnamon.

If the bird is female, put her with a cinnamon male. If she is cinnamon lutino, all the chicks will be visual cinnamon.

If the bird is fallow the outcome will be different. You will not get any cinnamon babies if the bird is male, assuming that he does not have a cinnamon split. If the bird is female and is paired with a cinnamon male, all the daughters will be cinnamon but all the sons will be non-cinnamon.

It's most likely that this bird is cinnamon lutino not fallow. The genes for cinnamon lutino are much more common than the fallow gene, and the change in color that you described is exactly what tends to happen with cinnamon lutino. If the bird was fallow, the coloring should have been noticeable from the start.
