pitted type is an ice pick. like a dimple on a golf ball.

A dimple on a golf ball is a rolling scar and much larger than an ice pick scar. They are very little indents that effect the outer layers or surface of skin only. They have undefined edges where as a golf ball rolling scar is a nice circle.

If they are large and deep with undefined edges they are boxcars. Ice picks are the least noticable scars since they are so small, but also can be a pain if u have many of them.
