Usually when eyes change colour, it is due to age and genetics but this would usually happen before 6 months old. While I would not suggest panic, I would not be able to say it is normal. I would have the eye checked by your Vet, or by Veterinary Ophthalmologist if needed, to ensure that there is no problem. There are malignancies like melanomas, that can be responsible for pigmentary changes, but sometimes the pigmentary changes may be benign and nothing to worry about. I personally do not like to wait and see ( excuse the pun ) when it comes to eyes - you either have vision or not, no second chances if you wait too long sometimes.

Good luck
