One single big white spot.

So, I just got Jake a few days ago, and today I noticed there was a white spot right right under his gills. It's really big, about the size of his eye.

Here's a picture but it's really bad quality, I've circled the white spot I'm talking about, anybody know what this is?

What size is your tank? 2 gallons
What temperature is your tank? 78 F
Does your tank have a filter? Yes
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? No
Is your tank heated? Yes
What tank mates does your betta fish live with? None

What type of food do you feed your betta fish? Nutrafin Max. Small Tropical Fish Micro Granules
How often do you feed your betta fish? I fasted him about 2 days when I got him because he wouldn't touch anything. But after that I feed him once everyday.


How often do you perform a water change? I did one 100% water change two days ago.
What percentage of the water do you change when you perform a water change? 50% and sometimes 100%.
What type of additives do you add to the water when you perform a water change? Nutrafin Betta Plus, Nutrafin Betta Enviro-Clean (I also added a bag of green tea into his tank yesterday, decaf and no other additives)

Water Parameters:
Have you tested your water? If so, what are the following parameters?

Ammonia: N/A
Nitrite: N/A
Nitrate: N/A
pH: N/A
Hardness: N/A
Alkalinity: N/A

Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? That white spot.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Not really. He's pretty much the same.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Today.
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Nothing yet.
Does your fish have any history of being ill? Nope.
How old is your fish (approximately)? I have no clue.
