If you are talking about what it seems Yvonne and I are seeing, it looks like damage or abrasions from either rubbing, scraping on something.

Have a good look at enclosure is it brushing up against a rock within the enclosure as it walls around? It looks a dry shell , please check daily soaks, water, hydration, humidity, heat, light and maybe put some coconut oil onto the shell and see if that helps. The marks will remain but at you can avoid any more.
