black on eyelid

hello my beardie is in good health and today I took him out he was acting completely normal didn't seem in pain and his eye were wide open but I then noticed some black-brown stuff up on the crease of his eyelids I was worried as maybe it could be some time of scale rot but it looks more like dirt and something that just got stuck I please any ideas on how to get it out as the eye and eyelid and very sensitive and I don't know what to do:( here is a picture and the black u see is just the visible part there is some more that is more like dirt but it is farther up. I am so worried as to how to get it out:( he also just came back from two days of boarding yesterday.

It doesn't look like a problem, any crease on a reptiles body can get a little dirt or other substance in it and since it's not actually in the eye it should just work itself out if it actually is a speck of something there. :)

Sounds like it could be mites. I would suggest a vet visit and get a treatment for it.
