    Welcome To BYC
    Where are you located (state/country)
    Can you post some clearer photos of the eyes and the white spots on his comb?

    The mention of white spots accompanying facial swelling makes me think Fowl Pox, probably Wet Form, but it's hard to see the photos clearly enough, so I'm just taking a guess.

    Look inside his beak for any lesions/sores too.
    Hopefully with photos and more information we can help you better.
