~2 weeks ago we rescued Cardinal baby bird - has something on its beak - Help!

~2 weeks ago we rescued Cardinal baby bird, fed it by hand since. A couple of days back it began to have some growth on the beak - Please help to identify and how to cure it? Any Suggestion??

Please refer to the photos here (photo 2,3 show the beak)20170719_145312.jpg20170725_020150 (1).jpg20170725_020053.jpg

We feed the baby bird with Exact hand-feeding Baby Bird formula w Omega-3 (Kaytee)
Not sure if beak growth related to lack of some nutrients or its some infection and needs antibiotics....? He did fly into the window a few days back, but it doesn't look like trauma. Still eats well..etc., here are more photos as reference: https://photos.app.goo.gl/kqTkovBI9RtQsKMR2 Thank you in advance. developall@gmail.com
