Default Ingrown Quill ?

Hi all, Lucy is about 3 months old and well into quilling. I noticed today that she had a halfway ruptured quill that was growing in sideways instead of straight down on her back. It’s red and annoyed looking and had a scab by it, but doesn’t look nasty infected. I’ve included what pictures I could get, I’m sure it was hurting her when I tried to look at it 😞

Do y’all think I should wait and watch or should I take her to vet on Monday?
