Question Strange spot on pectoral fin....

Hey everyone. I noticed that Nadador has a strange white-ish tan-ish tiny spot on his side flipper fin (pectoral? Its been a while since I had zoology.. lol)

I didn't think much of it... just thought it was a piece of food that got stuck there.

But it has been there for four days now and it has only slightly gotten bigger. It is really had to see because those fins are constantly moving. It isn't fuzzy looking, but it is reallllly hard to see since it's always flapping.

Should I be concerned about this? I would take a picture but I highly doubt it would come out with anything more than a blur lol.

Tank set up:
2.5 gallon
Not filtered, no live plants
100% water change every 3 days. I use Tetra's conditioner
Temperature is at 82 degrees
I use a pinch of aquarium salt with water changes
I feed him soaked or crushed bio-gold pellets 2 a day and a tiny tweezer pinch of Tetra's BettaMin tropical flakes
Water Params are always spot on (which makes me very happy haha)

I'm treating him for internal parasites, following the directions on the bottle of Jungle's anti-parasite food.

(this is because his stomach is big and his body is skinny. he poops A LOT so it's not constipation lol)

Thanks everyone!!!
