I can't tell from the pic - is the white spot cottony-like in appearance, or solid? Also, it appears to be protruding, but I am not sure - is that right?

I thought maybe it can be from fighting with other platies.

It had one and a week or two later another one formed. But the behavior of the fish is very energetic. He strikes other platies.

Likely some sort of infection of a wound, particularly if you have noticed the fish fighting.
