Fishie has a white bump on his chin!

I came home from work and Fishy swam up to me and I noticed this weird, white bump on his chin! What is it? I'm going to post a pic (it will probably be sideways because I took it with my phone and this site is weird about that)

What tank mates does your betta fish live with? in his section he has a nerite snail. in the other section is another betta and another nerite snail. the divider is craft mesh so they don't notice each other.

How often do you feed your betta fish?: twice per day

What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change?: 25%-30%

Maybe he bumped into something in the tank?? Maybe its the beginning of a fungus? Maybe he's been trying to get through to the other side?

Anyone else??
I want to treat him right away if it's something treatable. And I need to know if I should QT him because he's in a divided 10 gallon with another betta.

I have a feeling it's a tumor, though... I read that bettas get them and they're not treatable.

So can anyone tell me if this is something treatable and how it should be treated? Thanks!
