This is all in my experience or from reading here for a few years, and a few small grows...
Blue, if its truly blue, is generally just bruising from being dry/handled. Take a Qtip and GENTLY swipe suspect areas. If any color comes off its mold, if not, its bruising. People recently have been saying that sometimes the bruising comes off and others are saying that they're forgetting the GENTLY part and bringing bruised mush tissue with it... So, just for the rule of 3's... GENTLY.
If it were cobweb, you'd know. Cobweb will take over your sub in a day. Like, the entire sub. Fuzzy feet is a common thing that I cannot for the life of me remember the cause of right now... But theyre fine to eat and all that good stuff.
I've always read that the only light they truly NEED is seconds a day, if even that. They just need to know which direction to grow in.
YMMV and i hope others start chiming in. Good luck and good vibes!

And I assume the questionable point of mold in the pic is on the bottom right hand side of the picture? The spot in the sub itself?
If so, it’s hard for me to see for sure from my couch, but you will know soon enough. If the blueish color expands very quickly (if it’s contamination it will), then I would advise to toss.
If not, it’s just bruising.
Please keep us informed. Good luck and good vibes.

All right, I put the tub back in place with its friends, seems the blue was bruising - the Q-tip test didn't show signs of contam, and it hasn't really expanded since I started misting again. Besides they simply seem to have "fuzzy feet" like you mentioned, so it's not lost yet.
My fruits are overall pretty small but we'll see what comes out of the soil mix (I do believe it is more nutritive).
All of this is very exciting!
