Monstera deliciosa - is this scale?

I have a Monstera plant, and I just noticed the base of the leaves and some portions of the stems have a brown light "scab" (photos included) What is this? At first I thought it was scale, but I was expecting bigger shell-like spots, so I've no clue if I'm supposed to scrape this off. It comes off easily, but I don't want to hurt the plant if I don't have to. I do have twine around the stems to hold them together while they adapt to a new moss pole, could this be the problem?!

Please help,
Monstera Beginner
