Subject: Button hen with facial growth

Hi everyone! Hubby and I are new to being button quail parents. We brought home a silver hen we named Martha about 3 weeks ago. She and her 5 siblings were dropped at a local pet store after being an end-of-the-year egg-hatching classroom event (apparently this happens regularly). Martha was the last one left, mostly because the cage was crowded & her siblings stripped the feathers off her back. We felt bad for her & decided that we couldn't leave her there, so home she came.

My concern is that she seems to have a small fleshy ball growing on top of her beak, right at the feather-line. I'm worried that if it grows too large it might block her nostrils. It does appear to be growing in that direction. It's not raw, so I don't think it's from a boinking injury, although I could easily be wrong about that. Is this something I should worry about, and if it is, what should I do? Any advice would be warmly welcomed. :)
