Is this ich on my dogface?

So Scooby is fat, dumb, and happy. Very active. Great appetite, not sluggish or showing any signs of issue. However. Yesterday I noticed he puffed for no apparent reason, there were no tank mates around. It was only 1-2 secs, then back to normal. Because of the puff I got worried and closely examined him and noticed these white spots on his fins. Unfortunately because he is white I can’t notice any on the body. I don’t think they were there before. But if it is ich, I need to get him out and healthy so the other guys don’t get infested. So far no one else in the tank has any signs or symptoms either.

I could just be a worry wart since it’s a new set up, but rather be safe and come to the experts for some guidance.

Thanks in advance!

Not sure if link is going to work for pics.
