White Pupil in 9 year old

My son will be 9 years old this weekend and this past week, I noticed his pupil is white in some of his pictures taken in the past year.  Prior to that his pupils appeared to be normal.  Even pictures in the past year it is not present in every picture.
Is it possible this issue is new or could have been looked over for this long?

Dear dolphinsdive,

I recommend that you take your son to an eyeMD to have his eye checked for the appropriate diagnosis.
