Should I worry about a dent on my skull?

There’s an indent that is very visible on the back of my skull, I don’t know if it’s normal or what to think. I noticed how bad it is after deciding to shave my head and now it’s very noticable. I don’t see other people having it so it makes me worried.

Hello,

Dents in the skull are often due to the suture line (connections between skull bones). These lines or cuts are just typical structure in the human head and its not a medical concern.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
