OKAY HOLD UP, I had the exact same thing happen to mine a year ago! I’ll insert some pics to show you what the spot like thing looked like on drogon, basically it started off tiny and just grew and grew, I don’t know if it was bacterial or fungal infection or a cyst .. I treated him for bacterial and Fungal but I really don’t think that did anything when I did the treatments.. or maybe they did help but it didn’t go away straight away, it carried on growing and kind of turning lumpy like there were 3/4 white spots there, eventually it broke off and there was a chunk missing and now it’s healing, my best advice to you is KEEP UR WATER CLEAN, keep on top off your water changes and making sure you have an established fish cycle in ur tank, when it looks like it’s gotten huge and lumpy make sure your water is pristine and keep a look out for fuzzy white fungal growing around the area that just broke off where the spot was because it will eventually, mine took a whole year but it didn’t get in the way of my fish’s quality of life, he was still happy and curious, feed ur fish good quality high protein food, I use tetra pro colour multi crisp, it has 46% protein which is one of the best I’ve found, I have the smallest size which is 20g and I’ve only gotten through 1/6th in over a year so it’ll last you forever! I feed mine 3-4 discs depending on how bloated his belly looks, their stomach is only the size of their eyeball, and I have 1 fast day a week, over feeding is the biggest killer in these fishes, I know this doesn’t help you in identifying what the issue is but these are just some tips to give ur fish the best quality of life and for you not to worry too much if it starts getting big, remember ur 25% water change weekly and good high protein food and you’ll be fine, below ive attached a few pictures of what my Betta looked like when I got him with the spot and after the cluster of spots fell off, hes nearly fully heeled, unfortunately I don’t have a picture of all the spots when they became a cluster :(
