I have a two budgies and one of them is moulting. His face looks rather dark and I'm unsure if this is normal or not as these are my first budgies. He's acting lively and happy and he's not acting unusual. Is this just because he's moulting?

He is cute. I can't see anything abnormal. He probably needs a pedicure.

The little white spots on the cheeks (in a normal coloured budgie) are ultraviolet patches that show up as "bling" to other birds for the purposes of attracting a mate.

Feathers look fine.

Here you can see those patches
