I was feeding Haze her dinner and I noticed this part of her belly that looks like an indent. It is only on the right side and it doesn't look like it's moving. It is right under where she breaths as well.
I dont know if this is normal or not and this feels like the best place to ask.
Please help, cause I am very worried

Keep an eye on it, if it gets worse take her to a vet.

I don't know what it is, but if it isn't the samw on both sides it probably isn't normal.
I agree. Might be some broken ribs that did not heal proper.
If it was my dragon, I'd have a vet check it out, just to be on the safe side of things.
I checked on her today, It's no longer indented and looks normal. I checked the other side as well just to be sure and her belly looks normal. Is this a cause of concern? The indent only lasted a day.

I'd do like @xp29 said and keep an eye on it. It probably is fine if it is gone now.
Asuming he is acting normal, that is.

That is very common and totally harmless. Beardies have a large stomach + digestive system and often will look lopsided or lumpy due to large meals they sometimes eat. Nothing to worry about, no broken ribs, no vet visit needed.

Thank you all. She looks fine today as well. She is still moving around and climbing all over her rocks and hammock as well. I'll continue to keep an eye out on her and see if anything changes.

I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
