Insect or bird damage. Sometimes that will happen. If your seed is viable, most of it should still be just fine, just that small area will be affected. The rest will continue to mature, at least that has been my experience here.

Same with my experience, though I could have an entirely different perp here so can't say for sure.

Alright. Thanks Connie and Tracey. I figured it was an insect of some kind. But didn't know if it could be something else
