This is a common fungus. Ramshorn snails will remove it, just takes time depending on how many snails you have.
The fungus grows where uneaten food falls into the cracks in the driftwood, but the food will dissolve in the tank water and you can remove it with large, frequent water changes. I like to change out half the water in my tanks about every week or two. The water changes will maintain stable water properties and the fungus will disappear after a while.
Nothing to be concerned about.
