For background, 7year old healthy male JRT. Found this on the middle of his back while looking for ticks. Not hot or inflamed. The white bits feel raised- my nail clicks as i move over them. About the size of a 5p. Doesnt seem painful- dog was happy for me to have a poke at them. Dog has a very thin coat and we are used to him getting stuff stuck under his skin like grass seeds and little bits of nail from other dog- but they look nothing like this! Any ideas?

Looks like a follicular cyst that has burst and is healing up. Nothing to worry about.

Yes they are keratinous cysts, my dog gets them. They dry like grains of rice
