Hi I just got a few baby turtles and one of them has a white bump on his neck. He is acting normal and is swimming and basking but I’m worried and I have him in quarantine from the rest. If anyone could help me I would appreciate it because I’m somewhat new to turtle care. I attached some photos

If the place you just got them is reputable return the sick one for a healthy one. It sounds like an abscess ! Without a picture cant tell for sure.

No OTC way to treat by a beginner unless you have a animal science degree. Must be drained and treated !

A few babies... today that's OK but if all males all will need separation once sexually mature .
