May be a non maligment tumour or a cist. I had a female
zebra finch have that problem didnt affect her eating or
anything but she seemed to lose a bit weight and stay skinny
and have diahrea I'd take him to the vet to get him checked
because after a while no matter how well they eat that
tumour may affect the bird like mine.
