Fish injury/disease? Help

Hey so I got this gourami about 3 weeks ago, today I noticed this growth of sorts on his head. He tends to hide a lot so I haven't seen him in a few days and im not sure when this happened. Does anyone know what this is and if I should be doing anything to help him heal?

Thanks! (Don't mind the bad pictures I was mid water change so I stirred everything up &#128517

It looks like it might be H. Septicemia virus. No cure but not necessarily fatal. Good nutrition and pristine water is your best bet for recovery. A symptom of that particular virus is red bloody looking patches on the body and fins. Be sure to research.
