Question Something's wrong with Bud

I had to go to visit a relative today and was gone about 5 hours or more. I came home and was going to get Bud out and I noticed a sharp spot when I rubbed his belly to have him step up.

I can't see anything but I definitely feel like a sharp, hard spot almost between his legs. It wasn't there this morning as far as I'm aware.

I don't know if he could've fallen and somehow done it or if it's something else. I did notice that one of the toys came apart and was laying on the cage floor. I put it back together and after that is when I found this. My mom and I both felt it.

Could this be caused by him falling when the toy came apart or is it something more serious?

Is it his keel bone you felt?

I honestly don't think so because it's a small round area in just that one spot. Unless the keel bone is like that :?

Can you restrain him to have a good look at it?

I can try.

I did notice that when I moved the feathers that it looked like droppings were there but then how would they get under all the feathers?

I did restrain him about an hour ago (been staring at the screen watching videos of falcons whoops) and I noticed that he has these little black spots almost like dried droppings but it wasn't a whole piece so I don't know. At first glance, I would swear that I saw a wound there but it was the way I looked at it. I showed my mother and she didn't think anything was wrong (she always says that but then I'm paranoid about everything so if he broke a feather I'd have a heart attack). If it'll help, I can get a pic of it if you want.
