hi, I just saw today that my bearded dragon that I've had for around 6 years has a small weird black bump on his scales. it's not a scale-- is it a scar or something bad? I'm really worried about him

for reference, this is what it looks like, and he's acting normal for the most part but I just want to make sure he's okay
Is it the same as in the picture ? It's probably nothing really to worry about.

Do bearded dragons have any similarity to us or other mammals by chance? Could it be some sort of birth mark / mole / freckle?

Or is it just part of the pattern? A rubbed off scale or spike? It's near the side of it's belly, but I could be wrong in saying it's where spikes normally are?

I thought they ran all the way up and down both sides of their belly?

I’m not 100% sure that I made the right decision by coming to pick her up (against what the dr recommended) but she was in far worse condition since having dropped her off. Help! 2nd opinion!?
The basking side of my tank isn't getting up to the suggested 100degrees. Does that mean I need to get a new basking light?
does her poop look healthy?
In your perspective does my baby bearded dragon look healthy or unhealthy? Does she look bloated? she is active and eats very well also she is in her basking spot all day
you know that feeling when you want to change your profile picture, but like you don’t want to lose the good one you have? That’s me, right now
