White Spots On Betta

I'm worried about my Betta. I have seen that he has a white spot on his scales. He also has a little white dot on the bottom of his mouth. And he also has another white spot above his head almost near his eye but not that much. The one below is mouth is really white while the on on top is lightly white. Here's a pic of the white spot on his scales I can't get a pic of his face because he moves around too much. I think it was because my dad brought 2 catfish from a lake. That's right he found them didn't buy them. And sorry for posting in wrong forum. I am worried sick

If there are no white spots though, I would say external parasites.
