A dent on the side of the body? Myself I have never encountered that.

Excellent point. That is why I asked about where on the snake. The dented eyes I have seen before due to being on the dry side of things. Other than that I'm at a loss.

Yes, it would be a good idea to take to a vet, although it is probably dehydrated. Most likely a shedding abnormality.
