What are these occasional yellow spiky scales on juniper scale foliage?

I’m assuming this is an easy/obvious thing to answer (I hope so). But what are these occasional yellow ‘spikey’ protrusions on juniper foliage?

Thanks team!

It looks like a new branch of foliage forming, or its juvenile foliage.
How many more are there?
I don’t think it is anything to worry about, give it time and see what it does.

Thanks. Yeah, I think it is ‘normal’, I just was trying to learn what it actually is! :slight_smile: There aren’t many, I’ll try to note where one is and see what happens. I was hoping it was new foliage offshoot/growth, but I really didn’t have a clue. Hopefully someone knows what it actually is, tough to track something small like that but I’ll find a way.
