Kim : I'm in California. Can't zoom in on it well on my phone. I've never seen anything that resembles that.
Has to be bug , egg , larva.
I'd treat with Neem or DE.
Possible? A fungus.

BINGO ! Hurray! ! Kim 😁 !
Caterpillar eggs. Hurray! Hurray!

Thats ! EEE-ZZZ !

Go to nursery. And get some B/T. They'll know what you mean. It's natural and kills any caterpillars.
Troubles ended. 😁😁😁

Tomatoes form what are called adventitious roots, and the picture looks to me as though that could be what it is. Compare with the images on this link:

Omg, thank you. I'm not experienced yet on growing vegetables. I have the plant on the original pot I bought it in when it was little. Should I re-pot it? Or put it in the ground?

Thank you to both of you for your help. After seeing the images I would also agree. I'm wondering now if I should use the fungicide for veggies and put it in a larger container. Or if it's to late or what I can do.

Oh my 😮 Poor thing in same pot you got it in. 😬
Put it in a 5 gallon bucket or 18 inch deep pot. In ground if you have descent soil.

I would put it in the ground, tomatoes are harder to grow in pots, even large ones. There's no need for a fungicide unless you think there is another problem?

Ok, so I bought a huge pot about 4 feet deep and 20 inches round, miracle grow potting soil for veggies and plant food for veggies, I got the fungicide ( I saw your message to late) and a bigger one of those ring things. I hard a really hard time transferring the plant since the other ring thing was so small. I'm not sure if it will make it. I did my best tho. I will try again next year. Thanks a bunch! At least Iearned something.

Those look like roots trying to find soil to me.
