Bone (?) growing out of her wattles?

I just noticed today that my 5 month hen seems to have a bone or something growing out of her chin. When I pull it to the side it looks like raw flesh under it. There is sand stuck to one side. I don’t know what it is or what to do. Any thoughts on what this could be?

If the tongue is fine and nothing looks “off” inside her beak, I would try to soak the area with warm water. Clean it really good and see if will come out or off.

Edited: that definitely is the shape of a tongue. See if it softens with warm water or coconut oil.
Okay I’ll try it. If it is the tongue, what do I do then?
