My Betta has a white spot and fin tears!

My Betta Rocky has tail damage and a small, protruding white spot. I'm scared because I don't know what's going on. All of his plants are silk and his pvc tunnel/cave is sanded down so I'm pretty sure it can't be those. I've attached pictures, please help
I've circled the spot and fin damage, sorry it's not great quality ... He gets really excited when he sees me and won't stay still, haha.

Fin damage is probably from tailbiting. Could be minor fin rot, but I cant see black edges around where theres chunks missing.

As for the white spot....I dont know. Hopefully you get your answer soon!
If he isnt acting too weird though then it probably isnt anything to worry about

the fact that he gets excited to see you is always good!
What are your tank/water specs? temp,water changes,filter,heater?
Feeding schedule?
How old is he?

No, he hasn't been acting odd in any way and when I put aquarium salt in this morning the raised white spot just fell off. He seems fine now =)

He's about 1 year old and his water temp sits at 26c. I change his water once a week, I do a half change along with water conditioner and I wash everything in his tank as well. It's a cycled, filtered and heated 32l aquarium and I feed him 2-3 pellets every morning.

Sounds like he is in good condition with just some tears in his final...if you end up seeing black around where he has the damage or he starts acting lethargic or in any other weird fashion then I would worry, but sounds like he is healthy and active.

Good luck with him!

Oh, and there was black around the edges but those bits ended up falling off.
By the way, does anyone have any advice on how to keep a cycled tank cool through summer?

And when I do the water change I also make sure his ph is around 7.

Also, he developed two red stripes (vertical) on his head overnight. He seems quite happy and healthy though. Ideas?
