    I've had a couple like that, too, but they usually go away after a day... is it sticking around? [​IMG]

    S/he just hatched out lastnight/this a.m. while I was sleeping, so we'll see what happens I guess. It's not acting ill at all, otherwise.

    Just keep an eye on it... it should go away on it's own really quick. [​IMG]

    Yuo, just looks like a rough navel and should resolve on it's own.

    Congrats on your hatch so far!
