Unhappy betta lip disease?

My betta has like a weird thing on her lip, and I'm wondering if there are any diseases that bettas get on their lips?

no I can't get in close enough, she wasn't eating, but I finally got her to eat one pellet. SHe has like a deformity I think. I'm not sure, whatever it is I can't do anything about it. So hopefully she lives....

Is it like a bump or a hole?
Do you see any coloration that looks like it doesn't belong (particularly something white and cloudy looking)?

Might have come from a fight when she was with the others.. I'd keep the water really clean to prevent infections. Lots of water changes is the best medicine.

Is there anything in the tank that could have injured her?

Sharp edges on plastic plants or wires in silk plants, sharp edges on decorations or anything else that is pointy that could cause an injury?

Have you tried different food?

When guppy decided he did not like his favorite pallets anymore, he would eat the small powdered ones. Now those are his favorite and he won't touch the bigger ones. Fish can have mood changes.

but it's not wounded or nothing. They might have gotten in a fight when they were eating my dead one before I found her, because when I took her out he chased her.I'm keeping her tank clean definitely
