Our Mammillaria is looking Sad :-(

I'm thinking I need to dig it up and take a look.. :-(
It's about 9 yrs old.. been in the same spot it's whole life and container and the mix has been refreshed every few years. But this summer it's looking bad!
Every thing else in the pot is doing good. I didn't think to get a picture of the whole thing, but can a little later.

It looks like cold damage to me.

Hi Planto...
It does, but can't be.. It gets brought in the house during extreme weather.

The only thing I can figure is I must have over watered somewhere along the line?

This one is my son's so I feel extra bad about it. But it shares the pot with 6 or 7 other plants that are well.. so Im baffled!

Okay, that is a mystery! My Mother had a Mamm that died back like that from cold damage, but since you've ruled that out, I don't know. :/
