I agree with the others, it is probably structurally sound and not to worry about. I had a gelding got an injury that resulted in a similar scar when he was a yearling. I too did not know what caused it as he ran on a very large pasture and it happened there at some point. Anyway, by the time he was 3 or so it did not have any "texture" to it, it was just an "indent". I worried that if I put to much pressure on him it might, idk, crack. That never happened, and he had quite a bit of pressure put on it working.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
