I have an odd mark on my skin for a week that's not going away

I've had this odd mark on my skin for about a week now, and sadly it's not going away. I don't know what cause this and this is the first time I've ever had something like this. Thankfully it doesn't hurt or itch. It just looks odd and it's not going away.

I am a 34 year old male.

If you find any new moles or spots on your skin you should examine them closely and/or have them looked at by your doctor or dermatologist. Here is some information on what to look for, namely Asymmetry, Border, Color, Diameter, and Evolving. Please let us know how you are doing

It doesn't look like a problematic mark. But then it will be better if you visit a dermatologist to confirm the exact nature of that. If it is just a mark then you can let it be or if you want that mark to do you can opt for some laser treatment.
