2021 marked the start of the "Next Generation" passport, which has some significant changes from the previous appearance of the passport book.  These changes are described here:

You may note that the main photo is now black and white and etched into the plastic page, rather than a color print attached to the page, and there is a holographic "variable feature" over a portion of the photo.  This is not a printing error, but a security feature. There is a second page that has a color photo of you on a paper page.   

The photos may appear fuzzy or odd, but that is not abnormal and will not cause the passport to be rejected at travel gates
