From what I can see in the images, it looks like a deformed quill. They happen. It may end up coming in and always looking a bit flat, or you may find that one day you can give it a gentle tug and it pops on out. So long as its an isolated quill or two, the skin doesn't appear to be infected or getting worse, and she doesn't appear to be having any other symptoms of a skin infection, I'd just leave it be and monitor for now.
