Regular tiger barbs look very uniform. Maybe small variations in the stripes, but the coloring is usually the same. The green tiger barb is a straight line color morph from the original tiger. As a result they have different green color patterns and color shades.
Sometimes when a fish is picked on or frightened their colors will fade or darken. Since your barb is acting normally that's probably not the case.

If he's behaving normally (actively swimming, &c.) and eating, then he's likely fine.
