I imagine it could, but if it's got like a white coating on the outside, odds are it got warm and the cocoa butter is separating (looks funky, but not a problem at all).

And Welcome to the forum!!

is there a white, sort of powdery film on it? if so, that's not mold and it's fine to eat.
that's called bloom, and it's just the cocoa butter or the sugar coming to the surface.
keep your chocolate at a consistant, cool temperature.
and welcome to discusscooking!

Oh I always thought it meant the chocolate was old, I've learned something new.

If there is a white hair like, fungi like growth it could be mold but it could also be insect related. Moths will leave a white thread like cocoon.
