I havent heard of anything like that. You definitely need to get a vet right away.. not just for this but bc the cat neets shots and spay/neuter. It may be having an allergic reaction to something but the only way to know is to have a vet check it out.

Definitely have a vet check that out... That does not sound good, especially when you say it's spreading.

I don't think anyone is suggesting that you are dumb just that it is something not normal, is spreading and if the breeder can't tell you what it is a vet visit would be the logical next step. Does it seem to bother him at all and does he try to get to the spot.(scratching or bitting) Is his eating, sleeping, toilet habits the same or is there a change on that front as well? We only want to help you not offend.

its just frustrating..... but everything is normal, he doesnt scratch it at all, doesnt pull away when you touch it, at first i thought it was a healing scab b/c thats what it kind of looks like, but when it started to get bigger i started to get worried

I don't know what's wrong with people suggesting a vet check ??

And I also don't know why those people who come to seek advice are so easily offended and annoyed when there is nobody offending nobody, and/or suggesting they are dumb but only trying to help ?? Do people know the basic etiquette ?? Getting worried or frustrated is not an excuse for losing temper !!

If a human had an obvious skin issue that there wasn't a reason for and specially if it was growing in size or changing color the first thing you would do would be to go to a doctor to have it seen as it could be life threatning. The same goes in my opinion for our pets as they depend on us for all their needs. If there is something going on, on the outside its possible that the problem started from the inside. I would see a vet just to ease my mind. you may come away with ointment to put on it and or pills and the knowledge that you have sought the help of a doctor.
