An isolated skin hypopigmented lesion (has less melanin, the skin pigment that confers color to the skin) in an otherwise healthy child is a benign finding. So as long as your baby is growing normally and following his age-congruent developmental milestones, you need not worry about this skin lesion. If other similar lesions appear elsewhere in his body, have a dermatologist take a look at them; sometimes skin dryness can cause such lesions.
