Does his nostril look concerning?

Hi everyone!
Today I noticed my bird’s left nostril looking a little different. He’s been acting completely normal with no discharge around his nares or watery poops, so I was wondering if it looks like a cause for concern?

The vet stresses him out a LOT but I’ll definitely be booking a appointment if it gets any worse. Any input would be great, thanks everyone! :) FE66A179-1F1F-441C-A727-BA86F03D1DFB.jpeg 60FC4BF5-42B3-4634-B07B-8AB7012AA9A4.jpeg

What a cutie! I think it looks normal, but how does it compare to the other side? The outside part might look slightly red. Is that the part about it concerns you?

Hi there, thanks for your response! Yesterday it looked like there might’ve been something clogged in his nose, but it must’ve been dander since it disappeared this morning.. Turns out I was freaking out over nothing haha!

Hi everyone!

I made a post yesterday and was able to take some better photos today. Upon closer inspection it looks like one of his nostrils is still a little clogged :( He’s acting and pooping normally but I’m probably still going to take him for a check up.

Does it look like it could be a respiratory/fungal infection or just bird boogers?

Thanks so much!

(I’ve attached a picture of his right nostril as well for comparison)

It is certainly swollen and inflamed. I'd say it's a seed or some such caught up in his nostril and making it turn into an infection. Time to get it taken care of.
