I have looked on line at many images and do not see one that matches or looks like what he has.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

How long has he had this ongoing?

Is he itching the area?

Any new diets started prior to this?

What flea product do you use and how often?

Since you have reported that what you are seeing isn't commonplace, can you post a photo of this to let me see what you are seeing? To post a photo, you can use the paper clip on the tool bar. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web address here for me to have a peek.
