Potential mites on a budgie

Potential mites on a budgie-3d94a356-7497-4d71-b1fd-7b57232a2e97.jpg
Hi,
I purchased my first budgie a couple of months ago and he has a thin crust around his eyes and on his beak (which he has always had) I have just seen online that this can mean he has mites. I have tried to attach a photo but Iím unsure whether it had worked. Can anyone give me any info on what to do? How to treat it? And if the photo has uploaded whether it is mites or not?
Thanks
