Odd "growth" around clowfish mouth

While feeding today I noticed a "growth" around one of my clownfish's mouth. He doesn't seem to br able to close his mouth. I dont know if he is eating or not. He is acting fine (no heavy breathing or having trouble swimming) however he is staying towards the middle of the tank and not adventuring like normal. I have had him for 2 and 1/2 months. I did add 2 royal grammas 3 weeks ago and have seem no aggression or sign of disease in either my clowns or royal grammas. I'm lost on what it could be whether it's an infection, disease, parasite, or a stress induced thing.
Water parameters- pH 8.0 nitrite 0 nitrate 0 ammonia 0 salinity 32 ppt
I can't figure out how to attach a picture

Thats what I had concluded but was making sure. Was it a cut that may have caused it? Is it contagious to other fish who might cut get a cut?

I was researching further on fungal infections and came across lymphocytes and I read a few articles on that along with pictures and I believe that is the issue at hand. Thank you for your help and advice.
