What in the world is this???

I found this on my betta the other day. It looks like pulled up scales almost. Since I took these pictures it looks like the "pulled up scales" fell off. Could it be pulled up scales? Is he going to be alright?

Could be scales. They do fall off from time to time. Does he have a spot where the pulled up scale was? A spot that looks like a scale is missing?
