Default Mold on outside of Berliner Weisse cap

I brewed a Berliner Weisse on the 5th of April. I put the lacto and sacch in at the same time to ferment.
Checked it today and I have some mold growing on the carboy cap and blowoff tube. Should I be worried?

Second how can I tell when it is sour enough? I tried some about a month ago and it wasn't, but now I don't want to remove the cap since there is a greater risk of infection.

Should I just keg it and call it good?

Thank you

Can't you just clean the mold off and then take a sample? I mean, technically it is already infected...

Personally, my policy is to not mess around with mold. I'd dump it. If you don't, please make sure the beer is safe before sharing it with others!
