My tarantula didn't eat his cricket and has a white spot on his abdomen he also is not moving for witch I'm very concerned about is he going to molt? Or something else?

we need some light. Can't see anything from that.

You mentioned white spot, doesn't sound very good. Please post one with better lighting if possible.

Also, the substrate is no good for tarantulas. coco fibre, top soil or peat moss is the best substrate for Ts. That stuff looks sharp and may injure your specimen. I would change it out for the afore mentioned sooner rather than later. Could you give us a photo of the full enclosure too?

Ok sure sorry for slight bad quality
I don't see any detail visually from that pic you just posted that would be concerning on the spider, turn on a light-source of some-sort... however the substrate(woodchips) your housing that T on is not suitable, I'd remove it and put either Coco fiber, untreated potting soil or topping soil as substrate instead.

When was the last feeding before today? Is the spot on the underside of the tarantula or on top?
+1 to changing the substrate, that bedding looks like it is for rodents.
