Thanks for posting your query.
The XXXXXXX hollow at the juncture of the neck and shoulder with a prominent collar bone could be due to a muscle spasm or a postural deformity. A direct examination is necessary to find out the exact cause. Since there is no pain, a serious pathology is unlikely. Still I would advise you to consult your orthopedician for a physical examination.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
