Dark spot on forehead is a sign of prostration . It's a good sign it comes obviously wen u offer salah 5 times without missing it. Men who offer salah can see these dark spot on forehead as well as on knees.

it is caused by the pressure of these people constantly prostrating to Allah in Sujood, during prayer. As they foreheads press against the ground, over a long period of time, that mark forms. It is a sign of the persons constantly praying to Allah. Some people may not have it, as they pray on soft carpets, or on prayer mats, which cushion their foreheads, which means the sign does not appear.

is it a good sign? does it mean that anyone with it is upon the guidance? think about it.

those who believe in Allah and his messenger will have the mark of prostration shining brightly from their foreheads. Those who choose to disbelieve (like you) will come downcast, gloomy and be thrown headfirst into Hell.

So yes, it is a good sign, for a person who dies on faith
