HITH? Or something else?

Hi I was wondering what the black spot on my oscar forehead is? It doesn't look like part of its natural pattern. Oscar is eating and swimming ok. 55gals with the oscar and 3 snails (not food). Nitrate 10, nitrite 0. Ph 6.2. Alkalinity 0 ppm. Ammonia 1.0. I have a photo attached.

HITH doesn't appear overnight. It takes time to develop. That looks like he bumped into something.
