Is this possibly bud rot or mold?

This plant is an Amnesia Haze auto flower in week 12. FFOF soil. Light cycle is 16/8. Nutrients added per guide. Watering regimen is every other day. Temperature around 75 F. 55% RH until this week.

Overall, the plant looks very healthy but then I saw this and it made me wonder:

If you can notice a white spot in the bud; does that look like the beginning of bud rot? RH has been lowered to 45-50%.

Feedback is requested; thank you.

Certainly looks like mold to me.

Should I cut it out, perhaps?

@NewGrower63 Definitely.
Very gently open and inspect the rest of the buds too.

You’ll need to spray with a 50/50 peroxide water mix to help knock it down.
Make sure you’ve got a fan moving plenty of air too.
You’ll need to do a bud wash at harvest as well to get the rest of the spores.

Thanks; bad day for me! Appreciate the feedback…probably let the RH stay too high for too long (pun intended.)
