Sacral dimple: Does anyone have a child with one?

My son has a Sacral Dimple, a small dip or dimple down by his spine. Does anyone have a child that has one? If so, have you had any problems with it? His doesn't appear to be serious, but we are going to ask his doctor at his next appointment. Thanks for any advice in advance.

my son has that (he along with his twin sister were 11 weeks early)  he has no issues, I asked his ped about it and he did not do anything about it.

Where exactly is it?  Is it down low right above his bottom? My kids all had a dimple there.

My DS has one. They noticed it when he was in the NICU. They checked him out, and he's fine. We've never had any issues with it...

I dont know if its the same thing, but with my youngest its almost like he has a second "hole" only its not a hole, its just a dimple along the line of his bum crack and his pedi said that we just need to make sure we clean it out when we change diapers because sometimes it gets missed, she said its genetic.
