White spot on cere? (Parakeet)

Recently I noticed a white part on my budgies cere, idk if it's normal, but I tried getting as many pictures where it showed with a bad quality phone.
Kipp has had a diet change from seed to pellet and currently working on getting Kipp to eat seeds, there has been normal change in poop, and theres no signs of breathing difficulty or behavior change. I also checked maybe if there is a blockage on the nostril but its empty. Kipp does have a brown tiny crust near the nostril that might not be visible on the images.
But I just wanted to know if it's the start of something possibly bad, and to contact a vet if I can.

I've tried researching about this but all I get is mite spots which is what it doesn't look like.

It’s hard to see, but it almost looks like a little bit of cere is missing there. Did your bird get caught on a toy hook or a sharp corner somewhere?

Hm, I think it might have been with one of their old toys I threw out since the edges we're becoming really sharp.

It looks pretty superficial and it should heal up just fine (assuming it's a little wound). Just keep an eye on it. :)
