It's actually not on his pupil just at the corner of his eye like .() like that the pupils move around and the gray speck isn't on it

Since he is otherwise acting fine and eating with one slightly swollen eye....I would watch him for now and keep up with the water changes...I would get the salt out by doing a couple of 50% back to back water changes-if the eye continues to swell or the other eye starts to swell too...I would place him in a small bare QT container that can be floated in the heated tank to maintain temp in the 76-77F range and start him on Epsom salt 2tsp/gal (Not aquarium salt) and tannins premixed in a 1gal jug of dechlorinated water to use for water changes in the small QT container......good nutrition and good water quality right now and watch him...like I am sure you are already doing..lol.......post a pic and fill this out too.....
