decimal point

a dot or comma which separates whole numbers from decimal fractions, e.g. in 2.75

COMMENT: The dot should be raised above the line, though it is never printed in this way by computer printers. Note that the decimal point is used in English-speaking countries, and that in most other countries the decimal is indicated by a comma.
