Brief Answer:
??? Leuconychia

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It seems like leukonychia. Does she often bite nails? If yes, it could be the result of nail biting. However in my opinion, I will suggest to see her pediatrician to check for nutritional deficiencies and other causes. These spots would vanish as new nail is formed, however it is important to address the cause/s involved (if any).

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Regards
