Waxy Growth on Top of Avocado Tree

This tree is about 9 months old, and has been pot bound for a month or so (now moved to this big current pot). It seemed to stop growing a few months back presumably when it's roots ran out of room. Only the white waxy stuff on top has been growing. My question is what is it? There are lots of conflicting opinions online, like it was an immature seed. (Maybe as it was straight out of an avocado I ate.) Other ideas are a virus or disease or it's an albino plant?

Your avocado tree seems to be rewarding your care with flowers and perhaps fruit. The waxy growth seems to me to be a flower stalk developing

It could be a fungus called black spot, caused by too high humidity. You would have to spray with an antifungal product.
