I can't tell if this is corn, wart, callus or anything else.

Thank you upfront.

    Does it hurt when you press on it? If so,and because of the dark spot in the centre it looks like a wart/verucca.  If you pound away on a keyboard you may have picked it up there.

      It slightly hurts when I press on it with a fingernail. It's not flat as it may look on those pictures. This is like a tiny hole with this dry/thickened skin. So still wart ? What's the best way to get rid of it. Freezing?

    You can try any of the patent wart removers first.      If they dont work then freezing .     Are you sure its not a splinter?

    if the skin keeps thickening up, it's probably warts, you may want to go to the clinic to get it lasered off ASAP before you spread it elsewhere on your body.  Laser will be quick - one time get it out and let it heal. I think it's faster than freezing it off. My mum had hers lasered off. it healed and no occurrence.
