Hi there!

White matter refers to the layer that forms the outer covering of the neurons (brain cells) and largely consists of supporting cells, nerve extensions and myelin consisting of glycoproteins and lipids. It is normal to have white matter present and it is rather the absence not the presence of white matter that is considered abnormal.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
