I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.

Thank you for the very good fotos.
This freckle looks absolutely harmless, even though you can only tell for sure qwhen you have the chance to see it in reality.
Actually, it is possible to have a melanoma even in this place. But you are on the safe side; I assume, you have had this for a very long time.
You can show it your doctor when you see him/her out of other reasons, but there is lots of time. Please see her/him asap, if the colour changes or the borders become edgy.
All the best!
