Hi all,

My little guy (who is my first tortoise) has a bit of plastron that seems to overlap like a finger nail. (Right side near middle) I soak him every day. I saw someone on YouTube give their tort a scrub with a toothbrush. Wondering if I should do that to make sure that area, including the bit that has a small gap, stays clean?

Also is this a health concern at all? His belly button area was wonky when I got him last fall, and it's smoothed out a lot. This part raised a red flag with me cause it's a gap and I worry it might affect proper growth.

Thanks!
