It may be some mold/fungus. Hard to really say. You might try putting a bit of hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle and spraying them down with it. Sometimes that helps.

Let a little fresh air get to them. As long as they’re in good contact with moist medium they’ll have enough moisture. Just don’t let the surface of the medium dry out.
