I just noticed while feeding my son that he has 2 dark black spots on the roof of his mouth. I will try to explain the best I can: they are on the left and right side of the "line" that goes through the center of his palate?  They almost look like bruises but darker.  Have any of you seen this b4 or know what it could be?

I have never seen that. I would take him to a pediatric dentist, or pediatric ENT.

Personally, I would be worried and would ask someone in the emergency room of a hospital.  I never heard of such a thing.  Sorry he has that. I hope someone can help you out.  And I hope it is just a bruise and not serious.  Best regards,

I have never heard of such a thing ether.  I would call your baby pediatrician.  Have him or her take a look at it.    I  would call the office if closed I know when I call there is  some type of answer service and they page the doctor.

I did find something about breastfed babies may have discoloration. I would still get him checked out.

Yeah I googled everything under the sun and couldn't find anything and he hasn't been breastfed.
