Just a spot or something worse?
#1
   

So my hubby found this on one of our boys this evening. He has accidently knocked the scab off the top trying to look at it under all his fur.
It doesn't appear to be causing him any pain... he's happy to let us have a look at it.
Has anyone seen anything like this before?

Thanks in advance

It's very difficult to say what it is from a photo. It could be a hot spot, a bug bite or something completely different. 

Sorry I do't want to even guess what it could be. My suggestion would be to wash the area well and watch it closely. If it gets worse in the next day see your vet. 

With the holiday coming quickly you don't want to wait too long if you need to see a vet.

It may be a papilloma, which is like a wart, but the thing to do is to keep an eye on it. If it grows rapidly, it needs to be seen immediately. If it doesn't heal normally, it needs to be seen when you realize it isn't healing well. If it stays the same size and heals normally, just bring it to your vet's attention next time you are in.
Gotta love 'em.
