I’ve done some research and think it might be a histiocytoma. If someone could please help me and give me some info. I saw a home remedy using apple cider vinegar to treat it, but wanted some others opinions before doing so. He’s not bothered by it and doesn’t seem to even know it is there.

Thank you in advance! (:
