Not sure I had a single dot like that on my yellow tang he was in qt for a month or better and now he's been in my dt for a month and it never changed..... And that's way past the cycle of ick so I'm guessing my tang will be fine I'd qt the angel for at least a couple of weeks to see if it changes.... And even in qt you will still enjoy him or her and the month will fly by a qt is worth it.....

plus his right fin has a blotch or something on it. Its not a spot it looks blotchy. To be more specific its a cloudy fin not completely translucent.

Looks like lymphocystis. Usually just keeping your water quality very good will help make it go away.

I agree with Larry. It`s too big to be ich or also known as Cryptocaryon irritans. Here is a good link on the Lymphocytis that Larry told you about.

How do i treat it? Also, should i get QT tank for him or just let him be?

I also noticed that his right fin has some cloudiness to it and his tail look jagged on the ends of it.

Also from the picture you can tell there is some cloudiness on the tail
