bubble underneath my clownfish skin

newb to forums! just got a new true percula, about 3 weeks ago, and I noticed the day I got him he has, what appears to be, some small "bubbles" under his skin. they are about a millimeter in diameter (or smaller) and only appear underneath his white stripes. there are 3 of them total on his body and I cannot seem to find any info online about this. it doesn't fall into the category of any diseases or parasites I have looked up. he seems perfectly healthy and active eating habits are normal
all my parameters are safe and stable. like I said he had these when I picked him up.
just wondering if anyone knows/has seen this before
any input is appreciated, and thank you!

Idk maybe go back to the lfs and ask them. Check out the clowns there to see if some of them have it to.

Thanks for the responses, I sure hope its not ich! But from the research I've done on it and the pictures I have seen it does not look like ich
I was finally able to snap a picture of it, in which you could actually see it

One is on his middle stripe and one on the stripe on his head above his eye

This one is harder to see it is on his tail stripe right in the middle

I am hoping its just part of his body
