not sure what meds you have like melafix..keep your water spotless while an admin responds.. i would do water changes daily to prevent a bacterial infection.

Could be a mechanical injury... but the areas around some of his sensory pits do look a bit eroded. Have you tested water recently?

Completely agree, there is significant erosion around the nostrils. Hith will follow if not corrected asap. You say water is clean, but fish shows signs of living in sketchy water. Looks clean and is clean are totally different.
