Scratch on Macbook Pro (late 2016)? Is this common?

Hi all,

As I was cleaning my Macbook Pro (late 2016 with Touch ID) screen today, I noticed there were some small dots and lines that couldn't be wiped off. I noticed they were there beforehand, as they line up with some keys on the keyboard, but didn't think much of it. But today I realized these are scratches and divots in my screen. Of course, this isn't affecting the performance or display of the device - I'm just wondering if there are any other people out there with this issue, and if this is a quality control thing.

Thanks!

Maybe something was pressing down on the top carrying while the laptop is being transported?
Now that I think about it, I remember a time when my friend was sitting on my bag when my laptop was inside. That might be it? Is there anything I can do about it?

Yes, others have noticed-- see this thread.
What can I do about it?

No soapbox intended-- the screen can always be replaced. Just saying to not worry about it, as that's a whole lot cheaper.
