    Hi my Betta has recently had a growth appear on the side of his head. I noticed it when moving him to a larger tank as he was scared by the net when first entering his tank and hit his fin on his head cause some scales to flake away. It’s a dark gray growth on the side of his head that is raised just enough to be noticeable. Here are the best picture I could get of it

    If he was injured and that caused the loss of a few scales, maybe it’s possible the area has become infected? I would google treatments for injury infection for fish or see if you can find any articles that will help you determine if that could be what happened?
