 Weird dark spot on the side

We have had out tadpoles since the beginning of August, they are just finally sprouting tiny tiny little hind legs. I have recently cleaned their habitat to add some rocks for them to be able to breath. I have noticed them kind of laying on their sides. Is this normal when they first start getting their legs?

My main question is: one of our tadpoles has a dark hole like spot on his left side. Is this something that is developing or is he hurt? Please help me figure out what to do my son and I alike will be devastated if we loose one of them.

first question is: yes, it’s normal. second question is: It’s either a birth defect, or it got in a fight with another tadpole.
