Cystolithic hairs or mold??

Hey y'all,
I bought my first USB microscope and popped some bud under it. I found these on the stems....for reference and lung health, are these cystolithic hairs or a white mold? Thanks in advance!

I'm new to all this, but that doesn't look to be a part of the weed plant itself. If it was cystolithic hairs wouldn't it also be surrounded by the 2 other types of trichomes and be on a bud or a leaf instead of on the stem?

I say cistolithic hairs...

If it were mold I would think the hairs would be growing intertwined & looking like a hairball or rat nest. All those filaments wouldn't be growing nearly parallel to one another.
Also, there are, what appears to be, capitate stalked trichomes mixed within the mass of filaments.

The one line that crosses the entire photo is a cat/dog/human hair.

Looks like mold/fungus that is growing out of that rotten green colored flake.
Maybe a dead bug thats been taking over by mold.
Or maybe some spider mite webbing.

It doesn't look like cystolith hairs to me
https://dhomedicinal.com/cystolith-hairs-cannabis/

Cystolithic hairs are very small. While on your picture the 'hairs' are very large and uneven in length. One is even extremely large running right above it. (I don't think thats an animal or a human hair. It has the same colour and diameter of the other white 'hairs'. Animal and human hair will show much thicker under the microscope and not with the exact same colour.)

Left: Trichome Right: Cystolithic hair
