What’s happening to my guy? He was shedding on his face and it’s been darker there for a few weeks and now it looks almost like a scale fell off or something? He’s been gaping a lot tonight too, I don’t know if that’s relevant or not but I’m worried :(

It looks like the scales may have been damaged during shed or rubbed up against something. You might want to put some plain neosporin (no pain reliever) on the area or maybe some manuka or raw/unpasteurized honey on it to help it heal. If the area starts to look more damaged, or the damaged area starts to spread I'd have a vet take a look and check for a bacterial or fungal infection. Keep a close eye on it and take photos for reference. Hopefully the scales will heal up quickly and not cause any long term issues.
