My palm has developed a white spotty mold or fungus on it. Not sure what to use to get rid of it.

Although fungus can attack palms, the problem is most likely an infestation of mealybugs or scale insects. If so, a systemic insecticide may be needed for effective control. I'd take a sample of the problem to a well staffed nursery or Master Gardener Clinic for positive identification before trying to control the problem. Best wishes with your palm!
