It's not too clear, but it looks kinda like mold to me. Is there anything like that on the substrate? Have you tried to manually brush it off?

Or it could be fibers from tissue paper, if it was shipped recently.

Did some more research,its a form of fungus.and two people had success with human anti toe nail fungus liquid.I was worried at first since it is a chemical, but if left untreated the millipede will die.so far he doesn't look happy ..ill check on him tomaro and see how he's doing.
