Catfish growing fur spot?

Hello, reaching out to see if anyone can help me determine what is wrong with my new catfish. Recently Iíve noticed that it is seemingly growing a fur spot along the ladder half of its head that is rather alarming. I donít know much about fish and was tasked to help my dad determine what is wrong. The tank is 72 gallons and sits between 78-80 degrees. The fish was recently bought and still has been acting normal, picture are attached. Any insight on diagnosis and treatment options would be greatly appreciated.

Please give as much information as you can requested from the "unhealthy fish" sticky.


It looks like a fungal infection. Are you able to quarantine the fish?
