Petechia: A "blood spot" on the tongue could be a petechia which can be caused by some medications or by injury (biting) it is an accumulation of blood. If this spot is under the tongue it could be a varicose vein (the return blood flow is prevented and the vein accumulate blood).
Black Tongue: Black tongue can be an overgrowth of the little hairy papillae on the tongue and isn't harmful. You can scrub the spot with a soft baby toothbrush twice daily & it should go away. (also, think if you have given anything that could stain the tongue--iron drops, pepto bismal, metal teether).
Dry spot?: I don't see how it could be dry under your tongue. Regardless, whatever it is that you are referring to should be seen by your dentist for an evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer

Black hairy tongue: There are a number of ailments that can lead to black pigmentation on the tongue. Your baby probably has a "black hairy" tongue caused by too much bacteria or yeast growth in the mouth. The bacteria build up on tiny rounded projections called papillae. If you are breast feeding, this is very common. Initially the tongue is white with yeast alone, but when bacteria adds up, the color darkens.

Many things: A dark spot may or may not be something serious. The only way to be sure is to see a dentist for an evaluation. Consider if there is any pain or tenderness associated with the lesion?
