That looks like a tick to me

Are you able to remove it?

Paul

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I can try. He doesn't mind me touching it. How do I remove it if he allows me to remove it?
Expert:  DocPaul replied 11 months ago.

Grab it at the base and pull it straight out

Use your fingernails to hold onto it

Have some gauze ready in case it bleeds
