    I've noticed that if I stick my finger into my belly button and give it a sniff there's a rather icky smell. From the surface there doesn't look like there is anything wrong since there's no like..swelling, it's not itchy, no pus, nor can you actually smell it unless as I say the finger goes in. It's pretty bizarre so anyone have an idea as to what could be up?

    Well, it's obvious that there will be yucky stuff inside (dead skin, fluff, etc.), the smell is given by bacteria thriving in a perfect environment for them.
    Just remember to wash it every time you have a shower and problem solved
