Considering your age, it will better if you consult your dermatologist so that if required skin biospy may be done to rule out malignancy..if it come out any bening condition like Seborrheic Keratosis or anything else treatment will be more easy.

Thanks for posting your query.
You need to see a dermatologist.
Crusting of moles needs to be evaluated. Any change in the mole warrants an investigation to rule out melanoma.
Your doctor will do a dermatoscopy and if needed will also perform a biopsy.
Please let me know if any queries.
