I used a booster to my mr beer. It's been almost 3 weeks. This is the only one I have had that looks like this. Is it right?

Looks like krausen with a lot of hop matter in it. It's fine.

I used the booster before and it didn't look anything like that.

Are those white spots reflected light or fuzzy like mold? It's hard to tell from that picture.

The generally green, goopy, snotty quality of it isn't anything to be concerned about.

The white part looks like mold it's not light.

Mold is not normal. Some might tell you to rack from underneath before the krausen drops. I wouldn't.
