looks like ulcer but also looks like a raised bump, I think I would use Melafix. However, I've never tried treating ulcers before, as the fish usually died from other causes.
Lets see what the others have to say.

Very serious ulceration usually caused by Aeromonas bacteria due to poor water quality.
Just follow this thread. Must act very fast, any delay in treatment will caused systemic infection which is usually fatal.

Yes Sir!! I will follow the thread closely. Thank you, Sir.
Hopefully I still have time to remedy as it has been a week since I bought the fish.
