My kitten is only 15 weeks old & tonight I noticed a small dint/ hole in the back of her head. It would be about the size of a pea. I haven't noticed it before & just wondering if anyone has any experience? Thank you

Can you put a photo up of it? Hard to tell what it could be without seeing it. :)

His isn't this big....I will try to get a pic to show you
Oh, okay, she gets her needles next week. So I will see what the vet says then. But she has been acting normal.. I would like to see what Giz one looks like.

My guys don't have these, Hmmmmmm a soft spot maybe? Or just where their skull bone ends? Odd.

Moses had one too when he was a baby, I always thought it was because he bumped his head because he slid into the desk once but maybe it is physiological normal in some sphynx.

It's more than likely just a soft spot where the fontanels (space between the bones in the skull) haven't closed...
