So for the past two days, I've been detailing the Lexus and saw that the rims needed a good cleaning. I was going to clean each one off the car and the rear wheels, I got off after barely fitting my floor jack under the rear diff to lift the back end up. When I got to the front, my floor jack would not fit under the front bumper to get to the Lexus recommended jack point. So I tried going in from the side, which also did not work. I tried looking for an alternative lift point and found what I thought to be a good place at the time to place the jack. Unfortunately, I was wrong. I heard metal bend and immediately lowered the car. I'm usually not this dumb and would look for other solutions before just jacking the car up but I was tired and not thinking.
So I have two questions.
1) What did I put that nice dent into? I removed the rubber plug and felt around and I don't think, or I hope, it didn't hit anything above it. (image is attached below. That is the front passenger side.)
2) Where is a good jack point that a floor jack could access to lift the front up?
Any help would be appreciated

look at the pinch weld under the car. theres a notch in the pinch weld that you can use to jack the car up.

I just had mine on jacks on all four corners and I used the main square frame tubing as the rest points. They seemed a little far toward the middle at first, but they worked fine. I didn't have good confidence in the pinch welds for some reason. Was on them for two days and left no dents on marks.
