Hard to tell as you have the blue turned up but looks more like algae to me.

Post some pictures with only the whites.

It looks like green hair algae to me! Diatoms happen to a new tank.
Well if that’s the case hopefully my ATS takes that crap out. I might know the root to my question though. If I’m correct I recently added both a algae turf scrubber and a reef roller mat. The ATS is now starting to catch some speckled spots of algae on the plate. While my Roller mat is doing what it’s designed to do. I might have have done it to fast all at once and slowly ate what nutrients I had in the tank

Checking your tank with all whites is a good idea as blues can hide a lot

Could still be algae, especially if only in the middle where the light is probably the strongest.

Doesn’t look any thing bad such as dinos, I would start testing tho.
Thank you. Yeah doesn’t look terrible. I’ll do some testing and see where I’m at on things.
