The attachment doesn't work for me. If that's relevant for the post. Is there anything different/wrong with the nares visually?

Nope just the area around the nares gets pink every once and a while.
I would make sure you give him everything he needs, and if you do then maybe it's just a thing he likes to do.
But diet, showers, sunbathing, hours of sleep he gets-all these things need to be checked.
OMG, I just checked.... is he just 4 months old?
Wow, if it's true he needs special baby care I am not familiar with, sorry.
IMO , at 4 months old he's recently been exposed to other birds. I'd suspect mites or a bacterial infection. So say he's been to the vet? an Avian Vet? There's a big difference. The pink color is a good indication something is not right. ( i vote bacterial infection). What part of the world are you, maybe someone could refer a AV local to you.
