Hi everyone! It's been awhile since I've posted on here but we moved into a new house and that has kept us busy to say the least! BT has been getting bigger everyday and is currently wintering over in a pen in the living room. He appears to be thriving, super active everyday and eating like a champ. However I did notice yesterday when I gave him his soak I noticed this white spot on his shell. It's soft enough that I can press it with my nail and it leaves and impression. I'm very concerned that this may be a fungal infection and I have given him a full exam and that is the only spot he has. Let me know what you guys think.

Now that the sites back up I just wanted to bump this to see if I could get an opinion

Not fungus.
Is it a burn or a scrape that's healing?
I'd put a dab of antibiotic ointment on it and keep an eye on it for a couple days.
It looks like not much.
