Phantom doesn't seem to be sick but this white fuzzy stuff is attached to his fin. Some is also hanging from his little leaf tree.
The only thing different in his routine was about 4 days ago I gave him a tiny bit of bloodmeal worms.
Can anyone tell me what it is? And how to fix it.

Looks like fungus, which is usually caused by bad water quality or stress. It should be treated by first doing water changes more often, and then treating the tank with fungus medications such as API fungus cure or Seachem Kanaplex.
To add to that, add stress coat because it helps with creating synthetic coat that will protect fish if it's coat thinned out due to stress or bad water. Temp of water should be 80. And adding aquarium salt ( although conterversial ) will help with relieving stress and facilitating osmoregulation etc. Some people say it's bad for betta's but I know a couple of reliable breeders that use it without issue. And almond leaf helps too
