That is an bacterial infection. It can be defeated by doing alot of water changes and feeding vitamin rich foods

Also get some maracyn two and follow the producers instructions. You can get it at petco and most other fish stores

Do water changes every other day and use the maracyn and if you feed vitamin enriched foods it should be gone in about a week

no keep feeding vitamin enriched foods to him to help him recover. It looks more like a sting to me rather than bacterial but i could be wrong and i would ere on the side of caution and treat it as if it was a bacterial infection if it got any worse or the fish shows any signs of stress or abnormal behavior.
