    Please check around his left shoulder. This is the only image with that mark. Thanks!

    Did you see this mark on the negative itself? Looks almost like a Newton Ring since it seems to have a concentric pattern.

    That's a Newton ring! That mark is made when your film sags and makes contact with a glass at the center of that mark. It happens on scanners and with some glass type film carriers for enlargers. That's not actually on the film itself.
