My DS has it. It's called a Mongolian blue spot. I FREAKED the first time I saw it because I had just gotten home after letting my step mom babysit for 20 min while I ran to the store when he was a week old. I took him to the hospital it was sort of scary not gonna lie. It's pretty common in darker skinned children come to find out. I'm puerto rican so my skin is pretty dark. DH is pretty dark too he is all kinds of nationalities lol. I'd make an appointment just to be sure but I'm sure it is nothing to worry about.

DS will be 1 on the 20th and still has it. It's not very dark though. They said it should go away 3-5 years old but could be there for life.
