Are you asking what's wrong with your guppy? Are you referring to her mouth or her body shape?

Can you describe the patch? Is it bumpy or fuzzy? Water parameters?

I don’t have any testing kits for the water but i can’t tell if it it’s bumpy or fuzzy but it looks like scales that are peeling off and it’s white (I’m sorry I’m beginner)

Sounds like something might be irritating her scales. Mostly something to do with water quality.

please do get a water testing kit, it is essential to know water parameters and doing always nitrogen cycle so then there is no surprises why are my fish dying, why is my fish sick or why it doesnt want to eat*^* these are prety much basics if you want to keep fish.

i would recommend these tests:

- JBL labolatory one (very accurate)
- API Master Test kit (idk how accurate it is, never used it but it may be more easily found in USA)

And when you get the testing kit, make sure that ammonia and nitrite are always 0ppm and make sure that nitrate is 20ppm or less :)
