Blue spotted puffer and ich

So My last blue spotted puffer was taken out by a LARGE hitchhiker crab I did not know was in my tank. After months of waiting I finally found another at my lfs. They had him in a tank with blue lights on and I didn't notice these spots/what I suspect to be ich until I brought him home. I just wanted to post a picture and see what everyone's thoughts were on if it was ich or not. I'm 99.99% positive that it is and I will be attempting to return him tomorrow. You can see the white spots underneath the eyes. His eyes also appear to be cloudy. Let me know what you guys think please!Click image for larger version

That doesn't look like ich to me.
Normally it's tons of small spots, when I see it.

It could possibly be a small case of lymphocytosis. Are the white lumps protruding off the fish?
