strange lump

Ok this is not one of my clowns (I have 7 now ;-)
but it is for my spotted raphael catfish that lives with them. I noticed a large pimple looking bump under his jaw, and now I think I found one on his back. He is only about 2 1/2 inches long and the bumps are about 1/16th to 1/8th inch diameter. It almost looks like there is a fine thread wrapped inside of the pimple. I have had fish for 15 years and have never seen this. I am scared it may be some sort of parisite, but not sure. I have had my 2 raphaels for about 4 weeks now and they are acting fine and have no other problems. Oh yea, the pimple looked like it went from just a raised white spot to an uglier reddish spot. Any ideas?? Thanks,
