Can you get the picture up close? I can't really see it. Even with the Circle around it.

Hmmm... Let me just guess what is wrong with him.

Is the White Dot only above is eye? Or, is there more than 1?
If there is more than 1, he might have White Spot Disease. Keep this in mind.
For your tank, since you have a 1 gallon, you should make more water changes throughout the week. Like, every 2-3 days.Or you could upgrade your tank. And for your food, give him some variety. And feed throughout the day. Like, 1 flake at Morning, 1 flake at Afternoon, and 1 at Night. Oh, and was the white dot already there? It has a low chance of being his coloration.

There is only one white dot and it hasn't always been there. I am upgrading my tank next weekend and i will try and change up his diet. Thanks for the help but any idea on the white dot?
Cheers

if you put your computer brightness up the dot is easier to see.

He never changed his behavior right? I have never heard of a disease with only 1 white spot. I would not worry about this for now. But, if he is starting to act lethargic and odd, that's when you should start worrying.
