Hard to tell what the color is. In the photo the growth looks more grayish brown than white but that might be the lighting. Photo looks blurry when zooming in...not sure. I’m leaning towards contamination but I’m a noob so take with a grain of salt and get more opinions.

Ok thanks for the input . I'm also a newbie haha I was expecting brilliant white mycelium. Also had to edit photos so the quality went down

That doesn't look great.  I tried LC for a while with limited sucess.

The LC can look fine, but actually have bacteria in it. You can never tell until you inoculate a jar.

I had a few jars colonise out fully, but they all had some yellowing and only about 3 of them actually fruited.

If you are looking at LC For speed reasons, I'd say the best thing to do is just plan earlier and do spores to BRF or Agar to grains. It will be easier to get results and you'll learn more about growing mushrooms rather than just trying to spot contams.

LC works super well but requires a bit of practice and equipment to get fully right.  IMO the risk of bacterial contams outweighs the speed advantage once you've got into a rhythm with other methods.

yeah know thought it would be white and grow out from the centre but I think I may as well trash these jars now. They look nothing like I've seen.

Yes I did create the lc because of speed reasons because my first ms pf jars stalled out because they were too dry and I have another 6 colonising now but they're taking forever !!
I'm getting a pc and some wbs this weekend and agar is on the way.

After reading a lot of things about lc and contamination  on here , and still doing it and getting it wrong , what did I expect! 
Thanks for your advice.

I think this is one area that just takes experience, at least for me I can't tell either yet
