Default Possible infection?

Hey how's it going? So I am on my 6th day of fermentation and I opened the lid on the lbk this morning to take a quick peek, (only the second time I've done this), and I found this white spot on the fringe of this group of bubbles. It doesn't look good...

It's really hard to tell based on the pictures. If you had good sanitation practices then it is probably nothing. If it really bothers you, take a sanitized spoon or cup and remove it.

Looks normal. Probably yeast.

Could be yeast or the beer is still releasing c02 trapped in the beer causing the odd foam

Thanks for the answers. I was going to let it just sit but then my fears got the best of me so I Sanitized a ladle and scooped out the parts that didn't look too good. I will be keeping an eye on it very closely

Looks like CO2 bubbles to me.
