Thank you!! I think it’s flat. I gently touched it with my finger and can’t feel a difference between the spot and the rest of him. Do you think it’s just colors coming in or shedding? The concern I have is that he has a mild burn or something but the fact that it kind of goes away makes me think not.In the second photo, the marks look raised. The other two photos aren't bothering me. If it really is raised then I'd keep an eye on it.
