Is this normal?

To me it looks like dry cracked skin. I don’t hardly ever handle him because he is so little and terrified so I haven’t felt it. In fact I waited until he was asleep just to get the best picture I could. The spot I’m referencing is the white spot on on his side. In the picture it is between his legs. Thank you in advance for looking.

Hey there. Are you sure it’s a he? Just curious.

I’m not a vet but the skin looks normal and uniform to me. Which I believe is a good thing.

Why do you say he’s terrified? His color looks normal and content to me.

So we’d love it if you would fill out this form. Be as specific as possible. Pics help a lot and you can’t give too many details.
