Around a week ago I noiticed a tiny brown mark on my redfoot's head, I didn't think of it much then but I was going to book a vet appoitnment. I've just checked today and to me it seems like it has gotten worse.

I'm extreamly worried about it now and I'm going to book an appointment at my vets but I'm hoping if anyone here could help me out? She is walking, drinking, and eating like normal. It looks like some sort of crack, and at the end of the crack it looks like a small raised bump. When I first noticed the brown mark I'm pretty sure there was no bump or crack/wound. She isn't trying to scratch it and when I tried to gently rub it with a wet cotton wool pad to see if it will come off (e.g. it was dirt/sediment) nothing came off. I don't think she has hurt herself being in her table, but she does sometimes flip herself by accident when walking over her wooden log hide.

See the attached pictures, any help will be greatly apperciated.

Just wondering if anyone has an idea on this? I'm starting to worry it might be something like scale rot?

Just looks like it rubbed against something to me. I don't think it's anything to worry about. I would hold off on a VET visit.
