Ich looks like grains of salt. Did he look like that when you got him? How long have you had him? Are they actually bumps? Hard to tell but from the pics they look like he's stressed so he getting paler

Can't tell from the pics but if you have any question I would qt him just to keep an eye you don't want to infect any other fish.

I don't see evidence of Ich from those photos, but as stated it will look grains of salt. Now would be a good time to get a QT tank, and some filter material to keep in the sump if you have one, or in the back of the tank. This will populate with the beneficial bacteria and can be transferred to the QT tank when that is needed. Doing so will cut down on the cycle time required for the QT tank when you need to set it up.
