Default Tiny hole in bumper, could use an expert opinion.

Firstly, let me apologize for not being able to use the search tool, I am at work and my phone refuses to search for stuff even though I am using the NASIOC app. Here is my situation:

Last night after dinner as I was walking back to the car, I noticed a tiny indent on my rear bumper in the shape and position of a license plate screw. I can live with the visual aspect of the damage, but it looks like it punctured through in a tiny tiny part of the indent ( at most 3mm). It might not be a big deal, but I dont want rain or other elements to get into that hole and possibly get bigger/worse/corrode the inside. So my question is, can I use super glue or any specific adhesives that you guys can suggest to seal up that hole? Will any of these adhesives eat away at the paint? Thanks in advance.

Duct tape comes in many colors and is asstesticlely pleasing.

Any idea what caused the puncture?? That's a weird thing to happen.

street side parking. the guy behind me prob cant park for **** and there was no street lamps, so either didnt see damage or didnt bother to leave contact info.
It could've been worse, so I'm not crying over it.

Ah gotcha. The 3M kit is a good idea, and if you want perfectly matched touch up paint you can try http://www.paintscratch.com/. They'll sell you exactly what you need to fix what you need to fix, no more no less.

Omg. So much logic in this. There is no way I am online.

Good luck with the fix

The bumper is plastic and doesn't seal anything. That hole isn't going to cause anything to corrode any faster.
