Mine has a very tiny one but I don’t notice it at all, even with 10x and 30x loupes.

Here’s an enlarged picture of the diamond inclusions on my GIA cert.

Edit: OK looks like Weddingbee resized the image so now it’s hard to see.  The indented natural is on the edge of my diamond around 11 o’clock position.

@Letsy29:  I have a moissanite, so no indented naturals here. But most of the time indented naturals are found in the girdle of the stone, so it’s not really visible unless it is large and the girdle of the stone is exposed, like in a 4 prong solitaire setting where (for some odd reason) they didn’t cover the indented natural with a prong.

For the most part indented naturals shouldn’t be easy to spot because of the cutters placement. If there were an intented natural in the table, it would be more obvious, but I doubt a skilled cutter would make a mistake like that. I would rather compromise some carat weight to get rid of an indented natural if it was going to be obvious.
