One month old having black tongue. Thrush diagnosed. Need a second opinion

My one one month old baby has a black tongue on the sides mostly. It looked greenish and bumpy few days back but now the middle has cleared and the sides have turned black. He eats poops and even smiles sometimes. Doctor said thrush but I need another opinion. The black is bothersome. He is a bit fussy but I don't know if all babies like this. He does make a umma umma sound many times when sucking or getting fed. He has no rash. No cold. No other places. Can you help.

thanks for your quiry

this is just due to long papilla of tongue , giving black discolouration to the tongue
nothing to worry about
its not an infection by fungus or bacteria
just take good care of oral hygiene
tooth brush daily for two times
will solve the issue

be happy
and take care of your health
