A picture would help

Does this look like cotton wool ?

Are your water parameters normal ?

It could be a fungal disease. Since the fish is not eating you might consider adding " Jungle Fungus clear"  to the water.

A picture would be helpful and as scrivens has said the parameters of your water would also be helpful and the size of your tank. I agree that it sounds like a fungal infection.

I would think that it sounds like mouth rot, which is a kind of fungal infection. It doesn't necessarily look at all like fungus until you look at it in a microscope.

A cycled quarantine tank and an anti-fungal remedy might be in order, however if the fish isn't eating it's usually a very bad sign..  Undecided
