Thanks for the query,

There can be many causes like local injury, atrophy of the muscle, etc.

Indentation without any other complaints can also be a feature of a condition called as Morphea.
It is a condition in which there is fibrosis of fat muscle and even bone leading to depression.

If possible, please send me a photograph of the lesion.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis.

Thank you
