Rainbow Wrasse

I have a rainbow wrasse that appeared to have the coloring of a female per a book I have on fishes. Now it seems the stripes are disappearing and the fish is now becoming a male. More colorful on the head and tail. I have had the wrasse since January and only have one wrasse. Is this weird or what?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Not sure by any means, but mabye it was in a juvenile form. Such as all juveniles have the female markings, but as the males mature they lose them. Just a guess.
