Default Little red bump under chin

Sylvie took a bit of a dive yesterday and landed on my (thankfully) carpeted floor. I watched her for much of the night & checked her again this morning. She was walking & moving fine (legs & neck all good) & this morning no swelling or discoloration, still moving fine. I'm very greatful that there's no apparent injury (I will continue to watch her carefully though).

That said, when I was looking at her this evening I noticed a little bump under her chin, right where her chin meets her neck. It's slightly red and the best I can describe it as is looking like maybe an ingrown hair (there is a little fur in that area), or a little zit that doesn't have a head on it yet. Do to the location, I'm wondering about oral tumors. I couldn't find any images or descriptions past "bleeding" or "not eating," neither of which relate to my hedgie. I'm hoping it's an ingrown hair & we'll just keep it clean. Is there anything I should be looking for though in case it's not?
