Unhappy White spot on Badis badis.

I recently got a male Badis badis from That Fish Place/That Pet Place, and he is a great addition to the tank. The only thing that concerns me is he has a white bump on his "chin". I'm pretty sure it's not a bacterial or fungal infection, but I thought I would ask to make sure since I'm curious as to what it might be. I tried getting a picture, but I couldn't get one that wasn't blurry (my camera's not the greatest anymore...). Can anyone tell me what the what bump may be?

Did he arrive to you with this "white bump" or is it a recent development? How long have you had this fish??

I bought him on four days ago on the 8/12/10 (Thursday) and he did arrive with the bump. I didn't think anything of it when I bought him, and I really don't think he's sick either. He doesn't act strangely at all, and it doesn't seem to be growing or spreading or anything. It almost reminds me of like a wart. I'll keep watching it and possibly try to get a picture of it, and maybe in the next couple days I can update everyone on the situation. I hope he'll be ok! =(

I am a big fan of frequent water changes to help fishes with all manner of bumps,scrapes,and or minor wounds.
I will offer an example,, I have an adult Male Bristlenose who during spawning and tussling with Female, lost around half of his pectoral fin on one side.
The broken piece finally fell off after a day or two and the stump looked bloody.
I began changing 50 percent of the water twice each week for approx six weeks rather than medicating the fish ,and am pleased that the fin has healed and grew back albeit shorter than the fin on the other side.
Is the same thing I do whenever one of my fishes is injured.
In this case,. I left the fish in 75 gallon tank for fear that trying to catch him would possibly make the situation worse.
Is said that the male Badis Badis is not always friendly with other males ,and perhaps the fish you received had been tussling with another male in tank that they were kept in. Not sure whether males of this species lock lips but maybe something to consider.
In any event, I hope the fish heals quickly.

Now an injury from another male would probably make the most sense. He was housed with other males so it is very possible that's what it is. I do water changes a lot as well, so I'll just continue and hope for the best. Thank you!
