Can anyone tell me what this is?

    So I bought a bunch of sparkling gourami and there was this one with a red bump. I felt bad and I felt like it would've died in the store so I bought him and would just try to heal him. Right now I just have the little guy in a Betta cup that gets water changes three times a day with almond leaves for tannins because I read that the tannins are helpful for the health of the fish.

    I didn't even see the fish at first and thought I was looking at a leftover food pellet! How is it attached to the body? Is it like a half-sphere with the whole circumference attached or is it like a full sphere and just a tiny attachment point?

    How is the little guy acting? Normal appetite etc?

    Like 3/4 out. He's skittish but isn't weak. I throw a little bit of food when I feed the tank. I don't really know if he eats or not.
