Exclamation White corkscrew shaped Excrement.Whut?

So I just got this fish from the petstore, and I'm trying to get him acclimated to his new tank. I just took the lid off the cup he came in to let in some water when I saw he has pooped. Big surprise right? This time it was weirddd maaan. It's white, corkscrew shaped and stringy.

Could this be something they fed him at the store or should I be worried about parasites.

I haven't noticed him having any odd behavior in the past hour or so that I've had him. Any ideas?
Thank you for your time.

I would feed him and wait.. if his poop continues to be white he will need meds. Best meds are fed.. we'll go there if needed.

Alright cool thank you! So it is possible it was something he was fed at the LFS yes? I don't really want to be all 'medication ahoy!' because thats what I did with my first betta and went overboard XD.

Supposedly stress can cause white poop but I've never seen it.. I've always needed meds with new fish that come with odd poop but maybe you will get lucky.

I read that in another thread on here! Learn something new everyday. I was more confused for the shape, you know it's normally not, excuse the pun so screwy.
