Cue Ball is only vulnerable from behind. You can use the Roc's Feather to jump over Cue Ball and hit it from behind. Try charging up a Spin Attack before you jump. Otherwise, if you are having trouble with that strategy, use the Pegasus Boots to dash around the room toward Cue Ball's back. You can hold the D-Pad while holding the Pegasus Boots button to have more control over your movement. When you hit Cue Ball, it might start going in the opposite direction, or it might continue to go in the same direction. After you hit Cue Ball enough times, it dies, leaving a fairy and a warp spot.

When the lever won't go any farther, use the Pegasus Boots to run to the west exit before the blocks close. The Spark is hard to avoid, so just do your best.
