It's usually caused by light from the flash reflecting off of dust particles in the air near the lens.

Here's an article on the subject:

An air purifier perhaps? ;-)

It's more common with smaller camera models with a flash located closer to the lens, because of the angle of the flash and the way the light is being reflected from any dust particles in the air. A model with a flash located further away from the lens is less likely to have that type of issue.

IOW, if you have any dust particles floating around in the air using that type of camera with a flash, it's not uncommon to see those types of results. Sometimes smoke can do the same thing.
