Dear Brad, I just inspected (closely) my group of five 2.5 year olds and one 9 month old. The 9 month and 2 of the elders have those little "hieoroglyphic" lines, perhaps not quite as prominent as in your photo. The 3 that exhibit are toward the greener end of color range, the darker specimens do not exhibit it. I am inclined to not worry about it, as it is evidenced in the area of rapid new growth and they look perfect in every way. I wouldn't be surprised if "snake people" would call it a new phase and charge extra for them (lol). You are a keen observer!
