That looks like one of the balls in the rocker arm assembly. Check and make sure you didnt knock one out

I agree. That looks like one of rocker arm pivots.

Simply because all the push rod balls are there now doesn't mean that he didn't loose one and replace it with another. He may not have seen where it went and just left it in there thinking it couldn't hurt anything.
Some people remove one of the push rods to make it easier to remove/install the injectors. Not a great move on his part.
