its probably to do with your UVs

the UVs around that point are probably all squished up

that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"

Computer skills I should have:
Objective C, C#, Java, MEL. Python, C++, XML, JavaScript, XSLT, HTML, SQL, CSS, FXScript, Clips, SOAR, ActionScript, OpenGL, DirectX
Maya, XSI, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Motion, Illustrator, Flash, Swift3D

yeah - as chirone said - your uvs's are messed up, tho rather than being squished up, i'd guess that the actual UVs are stretched over the whole 0-1 space - which is why the texture looks scrunched up. select the geometry in that area and you should be able to see what is being affected.
