Spots on purple firefish

I've had this fish for a month. He's had a good appetite and seems perfectly fine but I've been noticing these places on his sides. They are looking worse now and I'm concerned. They are fuzzy and white. I've seen ich on fw fish and this looks nothing like it. Could it been where he is healing from a scrape? Sorry for the blurry pic but he's so active. He ate well last night right after I took the pic. The only behavior that's different is he's going to the surface occasionally when I'm at the tank.

It could be fish fungus or columnaris. Treat it fast, it could be fatal to your fish. I don't know how to treat it but you can look it up on Google or something.

He's good. Whatever it was went away.
