Help! Broken Tail?

I recently got a white lipped python and noticed his tail was crooked. Is this a kink/birth defect or his tail is actually broken? I plan on seeing a vet but I am curious what you all think.

Looks like a long since healed injury. It's not involving anything critical, so it's merely cosmetic at this point.

It also feels lumpy but if it is just aesthetics, then it is something I don't need to worry about.

Healed broken bones in the tail typically feels lumpy. If it was my snake I wouldn't be concerned.

Could also be incubation kinks. One of my retics has something like that, but it's just one kink about an inch from the tail tip that makes the tip stick up at a funky angle.
