Nerite Snail Fungus??

I got my nerite snail a few days ago and he’s developed stuff on his shell? I’m a tad confused trying to google it, so I’ve quarantined him with a wafer. He’s moving around fine and doesn’t seem like he’s sick. I have sucked the hunch off but it comes back, is he rightly in quarantine and needs treatment or am I just searching for the wrong thing online so I can’t find an answer? Thank you
- it’s loose and not super attached to the shell, like it holds on by one point, almost feather like

That, I haven't seen.

I would be inclined to use a q-tip dipped in regular hydrogen peroxide. Shake off excess peroxide and wipe the shell off. With a bit more rubbing against the fuzzy spots.

Maybe holding the snail at such an angle as to not get any peroxide on his body or opening of the shell. Basically steer clear of the opening.

Maybe someone else has had this happen to their snails, has better suggestion.
