Hello. Welcome to JustAnswer. I am Dr Z. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with a reply ASAP.
Yes, I would be happy to evaluate a picture.
It is really difficult to tell from the picture, but it does not look like a tick to me. Have you tried to gently tug on it to see if it is movable?
When a tick is attached, the head will be where it is attached and the body will be slightly movable if you gently pull on it. It is easier to see this if the tick in engorged.
And if it is smaller, and not as engorged, you can usually identify the legs.
Yes, that is more what it looked like in the picture. You are welcome and I am glad his flea problem is resolving.
