In the photos below the white spot on his nose appears to be loose skin.....it wavers as he swims. I am not sure but I use a metal clip to hold and weigh his broccolI down and I think his skin is rubbed from that.....but I am not sure. I am looking for recommendations as I don't want to lose this guy....

I think he just injured himself with the metal clip. Maybe try using a plastic one instead and keep an eye out for him over the next couple of days. As long as your water is pristine, you shouldn’t have any problems with infections. I’m sure it will go away on its own. If you see it happening to other fish in your tank (assuming you have tank mates in with it) then it should be a cause for concern.
