Hi
Sounds to me like this is caused by scar tissue. This is very common and nothing to worry about at all.

When a cat gets a scratch on their nose, it leaves a scar and this usually turns black. Most of my cats have had this, the colour change is permanent.

scar tissue on nose?
by: Riley

One of my kittens had something like this starting when she was about three months old. She developed a thicker spot, like a thickening of the skin or scar tissue, on the bridge of her nose. The fur remained the same. The vet said not to worry about it. The two kittens were adopted by a family member. But just now, about eight months later, I have noticed the same thing, in the same place, on my two older cats (about eight years old), with whom the kitten lived from about age ten weeks to fifteen weeks. Each of the older cats has suddenly developed the same thing: a small sort of diamond-shaped spot, about 1/4 to 1/2-inch across, of thicker and darker skin on the bridge of the nose, with the fur on it intact. They are strictly indoor cats, and have not been fighting—at least not to the extent of having big cuts or scabs on their noses.
I've had cats all my life, and have never come across this before.
What's going on here?
Should I worry?
