White things near gill, don't know what it is
I noticed today these white things are back. They disappeared and I didn't treat him with salt or medicine or anything, thinking he was better. Does anyone have any idea what this is and how to treat it? I haven't seen anything like it online. It may be a little swollen around the area. His behavior and appetite is normal, though he hasn't made a bubblenest in a like 2 months.
