Does anyone have input on what this bump could be under the scales on my betta's head, just above the eye?

That looks like a war wound to me, could be a worm but I don't think so. Is there any other fish in his tank

I first noticed it today, so it could be. There are 5 Panda Cory Cats and 5 Oto's. Other than that is a fair number of snails and ghost shrimp.

So, this betta is struggling. Anyone have thoughts on this new development where the dorsal is deteriorating and the back scales are discolored?
