Default Can hemangiomas have ingrown hairs?

My 3 month daughter has a congenital hemangioma about the size of my thumb nail on her head. I recently noticed a black "line" inside of it. My husband thinks its a clump of hairs inside of it. Is this possible? I uploaded a picture and put black lines on either side where the black line is in the hemangioma. (Its shiny because there's aquafor on it.) I first noticed this because it had started flaking, I don't know if its related to it or if its just a coincidence...
