black bruising? in beardies chin

Hello, I was playing with my bearded dragon (male, about 4 years old) when i noticed his biggest chin scale was darker and it seemed to be coming off (the superficial part) and so i decided to help him since he had ended his last shed months ago and i thought it was stuck shed. It was a little harder to remove than other smaller scales he had not shed, and when it came off he had this appearance (as shown in the pics) and i dont know if its just bruising (due to the fact that he has been glass surfing these days, im working on a new terrarium since i think his current one is small for him) and maybe i made it worse helping with that shed or if i should bring him to the vet bc it could be something worse, it doesnt seem to bother him or anything :( please help

It's probably just some slight damage due to glass surfing and the scale being pulled off before it was ready. If you want you could put some raw honey on it but I think it'll be fine, just keep an eye on it just in case the glass surfing causes more damage.

Hi there, that doesn't look like a problem at all but just a little friendly advice , don't ever pull any scales/shed off. A little dab of raw honey is fine now, just check the entire tank for any loose crickets.
