Exclamation White fungus on axolotl?

Hi all,

It looks like my axolotl has some white fluffy bits near the back of his head. This is a relatively new occurrence. I change the water in the tank every 1-2 weeks (usually about 70/80% change) and check the parameters when I do. I checked the parameters a few days ago and everything looked normal with the exception of the pH being a tad high. Temp is usually 64-66F. The tank has a small canister filter and some ghost shrimp, but they have been in the tank for months without issue. Any suggestions as what to do? Will this go away on its own or is this something that would require salt/fridging?

I have also included a photo of his back foot. I think that is normal but wanted to check.

Thanks.
