Hi Harry01, Welcome!

I can't see the photo clearly to really tell what it is but I'm thinking possibly mealybugs or maybe powdery mildew. If it's white cottony blobs, it's more than likely a mealybug infestation.

Hopefully others with better eyesight will be able to more clearly see your photos and be able to offer advice.
