Brief Answer:
may be a pilonidal sinus

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
It looks like may be a pilonidal sinus. Usually present at the end of the spine, near or on the natal cleft of the buttocks that often contains hair and skin debris. It happen due to repeated friction at the local area. I would suggest to consult a physician and get a thorough exam. You may need to get spine xrays as well. If possible please upload the photo of the site. Thanks.
