Default small spot on cere

Today my mom went to the breeder she got her bird from to look at another. The one she is interested in has a small spot on its cere. The breeder said he and another bird had fought and its a healing wound. I convinced mom to wait to get him. Has anyone seen a spot like this before?

For some reason I cannot enlarge the second and third photos and I cannot see anything on the cere in the other two except for what looks like a very tiny spot near birds left nare in the last picture. However I can tell you that the bird is not a baby if that matters, it has gone through the first molt and the iris rings seem to be fully developed, he is very pretty, nice vibrant colors. Maybe someone else will be able to enlarge the pictures that I cannot and get a better look.

His cere will heal just fine, and it looks like it's already well on it's way to being fully healed, nothing to worry about.

I agree with Cody, this isn't a baby budgie, he's likely over 6 moths old. I do see that there is a band on his leg, which may help in identifying how old he is. Most bands will have the year of birth printed on the band, and also most bands are colour coded for the year as well.

From the pics, the band appears to be silver (?) and that colour was for the year 2017

It is a metal band that says "US pet 82446" I belive he is under a year, as there is not any white in his eyes.
