Unhappy White spots on my Betta's head

I just got a new blue colored betta fish from petsmart yesterday. He is a day old and is in a 1 gallon tank for now. I noticed he has small white spots on the top of his head. I'm not sure if he was sick before I got him and if he is sick then how to treat him. I just got him and don't want him to die. Also, he's not flaring, is pretty friendly, but if I put in my finger to touch him he lets me and doesn't swim away. Is he sick or just super friendly? Thanks for any advice :)

I'm not sure from the picture, but it could be a fungal infection. I would raise the temperature to 82 and start him on AQ salt. I would also strongly advise reposting this in the disease section of the forum where disease-expert people will see it. :)
