Hello!

Thank you for your question, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you.

Is the shell flaking or pitting in the area that is white?
Is your tortoise acting differently in any other way?

No its not flaking but the shell seems to be dead in that area, the tortoise is not acting as usual and is noty movig far from its shelter, but is eating when fed well
