    Thanks for your input.

    Nothing particularly unusual about that.

    If the scan/colour filter setting is adjusted to balance for that light source, the rest will go a bit yellow.

    Judging from his undershirt, the color balance on the original image is pretty darned close to dead on. The purple in his hair looks a lot like the purple wall paint just beside him, so I'd chalk it up as a color cast reflection from something else in the scene. And in five years he'll really like that photo because he'll be able to say he was a rebel even as a pre-teen and had purple hair!
