I do believe jacks are prone to hole in head disease.. like discus.. if that is the case I would get some metronidazole and dose accordingly to fix that before it kills him

white spots

so you think the white spots are hole in the head or is it just a part of his color? I will try to take some better pictures

HITH is a parasitical condition in discus and angelfish. HLLE (head and lateral line erosion) is a condition in many larger cichlid species in which the head and lateral line develops pits, mainly due to poor diet and improper water conditions (especially high nitrates).
