    Hi there,

    I was wondering if anyone knew what this growth of sorts towards the back of my girl's comb might be? I noticed it yesterday, it's clear and long. I'm hoping it's just a extra bit of skin or something simple like that. The black stuff all over her face is just dirt. Thank you :)

    Welcome to BYC - I am not certain as to what you are referring. Comb looks normal to me.

    Sorry for any confusion, I've drawn a circle around the little nodule. If it's just a normal bump, that's great :)
