User avatar Hi No0dles130,

The area of skin that you are noticing is probably an area where the pigment cells did not migrate. Areas like this are relatively common and harmless.

If the area begins to spread it may actually be a skin condition called vitiligo. This is a condition where the pigment actually begins to fade and leave the skin. It can ultimately be extensive or may remain small. There are some treatments for this condition that have varying success rates.

Best wishes.
