Help identifying a feature on this galaxy
Hello, layman here. What is that to the bottom left of the galactic core? At first I thought it was an artifact but I also see that feature in other DECaLS images. Could it still be an artifact? Is it something in the foreground? Thank you!

Here is the SDSS image:
I can't see anything at the position indicated,so I am currently leaning towards artifact. I will have a closer look when I have more time 😃
