recessed eye from retained shed?

Hello folks,

I'm temporarily keeping a baby columbian rainbow boa. There appears to be no eye or even bulge where one should be on one side, and that side has a patch of rough dry almost hard skin that is a dirty brown compared to the rest of the snake that covers the eye and the better part of the side of it's head..

The question is, can this be the result of a bad shed? If so, can the eye be restored after a good shed? If not, any ideas what it could be?

1 adult bull snake: "Dozer"; 1.1 juvenile bull snakes: Oscar and Phoebe; 3 baby red-sided garters; 1.1 macklot's pythons
