That could be any of a number of things. Its difficult to say based on these photos. Is the fish having any problems with breathing, eating, or swimming?

How long has this been there? Has it changed in size or shape since you first noticed it? Can you please provide tank stats such as water params, temp, foods you're offering, feeding schedule, etc? The more info you list the easier it will be to diagnose the problem and treat it safely.
