When I added Java moss to my tank, a similar thing happened to me. From what I know, if the white things are moving like worms they are a kind of tiny worm animal that came about from feeding to much, the Betta and other fish will eat them, like mine has and they will go away if you keep the tank clean and feed less. in my tank the worms ( if there are any) often like to dig themselves into the gravel and live in between the rocks. I dont really mind them anymore. the betta probably wont catch anything from eating them.

They could be detritus worms. From the bit I've read they do come from over-feeding, but they're perfectly fine for bettas to eat. Black worms need to be carefully fed to them though.
