Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

If its indeed a dent then it requires brain imaging especially with no cause or event preceding it that you can remember. A CT brain with bone window can be advised. You didnt pinpoint the exact area else the bony contours would also include the paranasal sinuses. It could be a developmental anomaly. Please consult a neurologist/ neurosurgeon in this regard.

Wishing you best of health
