Hey all, my brother (13 years old) recently showed us a black line under his finger. I'm really worried about what it is, much appreciated if you guys could help me.

Hi Dylan,

It is "probably" a hematoma.  Some blood under the nail.  He might have injured it, caused a bleed, and the blood is causing the dark color.

It happens.

It's not likely to be serious.

Thank you for the response medic-dan, I do hope it's nothing serious but he also said it doesn't hurt.

It doesn't have to hurt to have some trauma under the nail.

It should grow out.
