20 Gallon Tank Bump on my Balloon Molly

I just noticed this bump on my Balloon Molly Puggles. Anyone know what it is?

It could possibly be a parasite, but it looks more like an injury to me, personally. I would suggest quarantining him if at all possible in case it's something that could spread. Is he otherwise behaving normally? Is he swimming okay? Eating okay?

Yes swimming and eating as usual.

Doubt that he's sick then. Perhaps it's just a mild injury or benign growth. If you notice his swimming ability declining or he stops eating well, quarantine and treat him with salt. He seems okay for now, though. Just monitor him closely
