Unusual hole found on body

This seems like a very unusual question because I am completely confused by this "extra hole".  My daughter want me to examine something a while ago on her body, which turned out to be a mole on the lower part of her back, closer to her buttocks.  Upon examining her back side, I noticed a very small hole literally on the seam of her buttocks near the top part of the seam.  She never complained about anything and I never noticed this before when she was a baby.  I don't know when this developed on her body but is this something that needs to be addressed be a doctor and how does your skin develope a hole out of nowhere????

I have the same holes on my lower back area. They are pilonidal holes and quite common. Most people just dont notice them. At development, our bodies skin forms around that area the last, and as a result, there can be some holes that develop. I personally have 3 and they are harmless.
