Black Dots on my Ficus Ginseng

Sorry, I don't see any black dots. Tree looks pretty healthy. There is one damaged leaf that you could take off. If you get something that looks like tiny black or brown oyster shells, they are scale insects. If you get cottony white blobs, they are mealy bugs. Both can be treated with Bayer systemic insecticide, but you should spray outdoors.
If you see sort of translucent dots a slightly different shade of green marching neatly around near the edge of the leaf, those are glands. They belong there.
