Is this mold?

We are renting an apartment and started to notice these growing through in a damp spit. Is it mold?

    That is not mold. Looks like mushrooms or other fungus. That is good that they are taking care of it in a timely manner.

    It looks like a fungus which grows in dark/damp/uncleaned conditions

    Most likely......Contract your landlord immediately. It could cause serious health problems.

      We got in touch with them today and they are sending a company out this week to remove and replace the affected carpet, take a look at where it could be coming from, and sterilize the area.

    Pretty sure that's either orecchietti or conchiglie pasta. If not, it's some kind of fungus. Either way, needs to be cleaned up. If it's the latter, you need to also investigate to see if you have a water intrusion along that wall.

      Haha, clever!! We notified our apartment management company and they are sending someone out to check the unit and remove the affected carpet and replace. Thanks for your answer!
