My soil around my fig tree is turning white on top. Is this normal? Is this mold? What’s happening here?

This looks like minor accumulation of salts from watering and fertilizing. It is not a fungus and should not affect your fig. Make sure you are following instructions for fertilizing. A switch to demineralized or filtered water will reduce salt accumulation.
