If its crystalline - its proly to much salt - comes from your fertilizer.
Since the soil will act as a buffer - plants will start to suffer in days - oposite to hydroponics.
Where its usefull to have a conductivity meter to mesure the fertilizer.
Just scrab it off - and flush your plants soil in your shower.
If tho its mold - an image realy would help to determine - u better look at the humidity level - and have a little fan blowing at it.

It realy hard to tell - it almos tlooks like mold.
I would scrape it of and leave it that way.
keep in mind not to water the plants to much.
And no at that point - dont use any fan.
They are small not need for any fertilizer anyway.
With the watering u have to wait untill the soil surface get a little bit dry.
The roots are forces to grow - and thats what we want at that stage.
So if the soil isnt that moist to begin with - roots will search for water and grow large.
Sure dont let the soil dry out totaly - that would just kill the plants.
So far your little fellows look healty - good work
