The correct answer is B. Glabella.

The smooth nonhairy elevated area between the eyebrows is called glabella, which tends to be flat in children and adult females, and forms a rounded prominence in adult males. Indian married Hindu females apply bindi at this site to enhance their beauty. It is important to note that the pineal gland lies about 7 cm behind the glabella. The prominence of forehead, the frontal eminence is evident on either side above the eyebrow. The frontal prominence is typically more pronounced in children and adult females.
