Hi I’ve recently noticed that theres a white sludge in my oil filler neck that wasn’t there when i last did my oil change in November, just after a bit of advice really I’ve read that some models can get moisture build up and its nothing to really worry about but with this also being one of the tell tale signs of a blown head gasket i wanted to be sure before i cause damage. Theres no missing coolant and no white smoke, the car runs fine i do only short journeys 3 miles twice a day but i try to do at-least one 20 mile drive to clean the egr out each month.

I believe your thought is quite correct and the way you are using the car I would be surprised if you did not have sludge in the oil. This situation will be made worse in the cooler weather which would be confirmed by your car. If you cannot use the car for longer runs which would help, I would make the oil changes more frequent.
