Hello! I’m Miel, and I’m new.
I came because my female betta, Gracie, suddenly developed a few scale sticking up on her head. I just fed her so she is a little bloated at the moment. But she is otherwise swimming around happily in the entire tank. The tank itself is a planted 10 gallon with some driftwood. I know her next water change is coming up, soon and I do it about once every week.
I’ve attached a few pictures below. I’m wondering mostly if is something serious that I should be concerned with or not.
Thanks for the feedback!

Looks like a small bacterial infection. No matter how small, raised scales like that should be taken seriously since it could be the start of dropsy symptoms.
