What is this weld mark from?

Hey guys. Can anyone tell me what this weld mark is from. Is it something that is normal or is it a problem. The car is 1995 e38.

Looks like a weld to the strut tower. See if you have one on the other side of the car, if so you it might be normal, I'm not entirely sure though.

With no paint over it, I have to wonder if it's original

actually I take that back. Although the pic is somewhat small this looks like a poor weld job here


The other weld along the arrow looks fine

okay nevermind. I looked closer at the car today. Its not a problem the black stuff pointed out by exilion is just dirt. I was talking about the mark along the arrow. I looked at it again today and it is not even metal that is just some kind of plastic. I can scratch it with my fingernails. So I guess its not even a weld. And yes there is the same kind of mark on the other side. I just did not understand what this mark is for. I don't think its any problem.
