This is common on some driftwoods, the fish eat it and it tends to go away, you didn't state what the "structure" was made of, so I'm just taking a guess.

The structure is a piece i picked up at a petco. its just the front half of a ship. It is commenly sold at pet stores in various sizes.

I wouldnt call it cotton because it doesnt appear overly fuzzy

Its more like a white paint look
