Default Sunflower head mould??

Hello, I've ordered this piece of dried sunflower head with millet sprays parts, and I've noticed this white weird thing on the back of the sunflower's head, which I'm assuming is mould...?

Can anyone confirm it is? And if you've ever ordered sunflower heads, did they have something like that too, or is it indeed not "normal"?

Also if it is really mould, should I just toss the millet away too, even if it looks ok? (everything is sealed in the same packaging...)

Sorry in advance as this is probably a dumb question, but it's the first time I ordered a sunflower head, so I'd rather be 300% sure before I give it to my hammy ^^"

it does look a bit funky, but you can get them with white backs but i don't think it should look like that from what i can see-

Ok thank you. Yeah that's what I thought..
What about the millet sprays, it's best to toss them away too, right?

If they were all in the same packaging you definitely should. The mold spores would spread very easily to anything else in contact with the sunflower head, and even if you don't see any visible mold there can still be spores present.
