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

Hole in head disease? Ich-x is a great product, I get mine from aquariumco-options cures multiple issues
Would it still be that with the bump on his head? I’ll pick up ichx now just in case

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?
