Brief Answer:
Tongue

Detailed Answer:
Hello. I just read through your question.
In this age group this is most commonly due to mild oral thrush. though the typical appearance of thrush is white, it can sometimes manifest as dark or black. this can be treated with an appropriate oral antifungal medication. I recommend consulting with your doctor so that treatment may be initiated.
