Fish Sick foxface?

I just noticed today my foxface seems to have "bubbles" attached to him. Does anyone know what this could be from? They're not white but look like clear air bubbles! I attached a few photos to try and show what it looks like but the fish wouldn't stay still. I don't notice anything like this on the other 3 fish in the tank (long noses hawkfish, firefish, scissortail goby).

Thanks!

It's hard to tell from the photo, but are the bubble attached to the fish top spines? If so it I wouldn't worry about it too much, as Foxfaces and Rabbit Fish like to hang around the the corners of the tank around returns and power head, which produce bubbles that are getting stuck to it. It should eventually come off when the fish moves around.

Yes they're stuck to the top spines and the underneath of the fish.

If that's the case I wouldn't worry about it.
