Is this a gill or a parasite on my saddled Bichir?

Ophanim

Photos below. I have a hard time taking photos in the aquarium but hopefully you can see. It’s about 5 months old, still has very tiny external gills up top. Hard to tell if this is a worm hanging off the bottom of its gill flap or its actual gills just poking out a little. It’s hard to see but also hard to get a Bichir to sit in the right position for a photo shoot..

Is it still there now? It does look like some kind of worm.
