Concerned: Liberty has a white spot :S

So I was just taking pictures of Liberty before, and noticed a white spot on his head. As far as I can tell from the pictures when I first got him, he didn't have it. He was originally in a small bowl (when I first got him) for about a day, then was in a 1.8 unheated tank for 4 days, which had a water clean twice. He was moved into a 7 gal heated (and filtered) tank today. He is swimming around fine, and doesn't appear to have any other white spots on him.

Here are two pictures and I've circled the spots in yellow. They are the clearest I can get, because he is constantly moving.




What would be the suggested course of action? Keep an eye on it for a few days? Add some sort of medicine? (All I've got is Bettafix, but my brother has some medicines for his tank.. it's currently 842pm here, so shops won't be open until 11am tomorrow...)

Like I said, he's very active, doesn't seem to have any more spots, and as far as I'm aware he has been eating... I don't want to lose this beautiful boy.

Could be some kind of fungus? Are the spots fuzzy? If stringy and coming out of his mouth, it could be some kind if internal parasite.

Post what his symptoms are today when you get a sec.

Well the stuff from his mouth is gone this morning. He still only has the ONE white spot, and his doesn't have any other problems. Eating fine, swimming around, flaring last night. No fuzz.

He is chilling on the plants and gravel, and sometimes on his castle. So I'm actually starting to wonder if he maybe caught himself on something? Because there are no other issues.

Let's hope that's all it is. Crossing fingers.

Yeah, he's fine now. It did appear to be just a cut as I was giving him the once over the other day, and he is back to normal :)
