Omg please help me. I contacted the apartment but its Sunday night. I'll get them in here in the morning.

My son has a new stim that consists of picking off stickers. Well he noticed a wrinkle in the window sill paint so he started picking. This is what it looked like underneath. It did not look like original spackle and it looked like it had been tapered and pained over from the pieces he ripped off.

Someone please tell me wtf this is if you know.

*update*

So they came and cleaned it with bleach. There's a roof leak that showed under the paint because our walls are all covered in that shiny paint stuff that's waterproof. They're calling someone out to fix the leak now. He got annoyed when I asked about black mold and such and pretty much said I would have to get a professional and pay them to test it but its not something he can do.

I may still call the DOH.

What's the difference? I mean it was under a layer of paint. Is is still a hazard if its mildew?
