The first pic is the larger one. The second is way smaller. First roughly 5mm. Second 2mm

I zoomed in on the smaller 2mm one. Attached is that photo. Still looks ok? What worried me was the dark spot in the middle. It is totally flat and not raised at all. Cannot feel with finger when go over area. These images are drastically blown up

It could be a junction nevus (benign) because the nodule is in the center. it doesn't look malignant. If it grew, you should have a biopsy. If not, you don't need to worry about it and just check it periodically.
