Default Weird bump between eyes


So I recently discovered a weird bump on my hedgehog's face. It looks like some sort of bruise, although I have no idea where he could have gotten it from.
I've been disinfecting it with iodine for a few days now to see if it becomes smaller since he's had a similar bump on his feet when I got him and it healed just fine without treatment (I went to the vet and he just checked if there was any pus, but since there wasn't he didn't do anything).
Now I've tried to find something similar on this forum but nothing really matched.
It doesn't really seem to hurt him or at least not much since he's letting me touch it (a bit at least, he doesn't like to be touched between the eyes obviously). He's not acting weird and he's eating, pooping and exercising just like always.

Do you guys have any idea what it could be? I'm utterly clueless :/

I would think polysporin would be a better alternative than iodine, and after a few days if it isn't looking any better, I'd take him to the vet to have a look over. Let us know how he does.

Okay I don't think they sell polysporin where I live but I found an antibacterial ointment which can be used on bug bites, infections etc. and I'll see how that works out. Thank you for your suggestion
