Default Should I be concerned?

I noticed this before I even purchased Hiccup and he has had a vet visit since I got him but nothing was reported as being out of the ordinary, but he has a little tiny bump *the size of a pimple* under his chin. It doesn't hurt him because he's let me touch it and look at it and he doesn't seem to mind.

I just want to know what you guys think?

As far as I have been told that little bump is normal. All three of my boys have it. As long as there is no discharge, irritation or swelling I would not worry. =) Unless someone knows otherwise?

Oh good! I am glad to hear it is common, I wouldn't know otherwise. My Moose doesn't let me look at his soft side so having Hiccup let me poke around and rub his chin made me notice it, I really wouldn't have known if it was a common thing or not since I've never seen that part of Moose too well before.

Thanks for the help! I am a lot less worried now

like Nancy said completely normal, both my babies have it. I don't know about Spike but I think I seen one on him too. It's just like a little mole on their chin.

That is why I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!!!

In my typical freaking out fashion when I discover something with Daisy, you all calm my nerves with your bountiful wealthy of hedgey experience!!



I found a similar little bump on Daisy last night and was freaking out something terrible, was that always there? Is that a bad thing? Is it something I should be freaking out about? HAHAH.

PHEW!! I will keep an eye on it, but it did look like a little non coloured mole really.
