Exclamation I think it is a disease!

My fish keeps opening its mouth for no apparent reason.
PS: IT DID NOT HAVE BUBBLES COMMING OUT OR IT WOULDNT BE WEIRD!!!

Opening and closing the mouth on occasion is normal, however, if it continues this behavior non-stop, either something is stuck in its mouth or gills and can be a sign of something wrong..but not always....
How is he otherwise, eating okay, swimming without problems etc......

It happens about every 5-10 minutes. He is eating ok and acting ok besides that. It happened 2 days ago.
