Who was in the tank he was in when this issue came up ? If it is not injury it is bacterial.

Research "Lymphocystis". It's a viral infection specific to fish. It's possible to cut the growth off, but wouldn't recommend it. Sometimes the growth will go away on its own using an improved diet and water conditions.
