I dont think this is a KF ring as it appears to be deep in the iris rather than on the surface of the cornea? is the discoloration deep in the eye or on the surface, it is real hard to tell. If it is all inside on the colored portion of the eye, it is all considered normal pigmentary variation.

inside the colored portion, but it is only visible when a flash is used on the camera, not in normal lighting.

If it is on the colored portion, that is the iris, by definition it is not KF ring. Regards
