this mark on my left lens has been on it a while, but it doesn't effect me in games

ran my finger over it and it doesn't "feel scratched"

i will try and clean it like i do with my glasses

its hard to take a pic of it so i made a video too

I wouldn't worry about it although it may effect resale value if you come to sell. I have lens inserts in my aero to protect against scratches, might be worth investing in some?

Looks like a smudge rather than scratches. Try using an alcohol free lens wipe. I use zeiss lens wipes which are designed for coated lenses of all types.

I recently slightly scratched my PC monitor, and no amount of polishing would remove it so I smeared a bit of vaseline in it and it effectively made it vanish. You can only really see it now when sunlight shines on the screen. Though I wouldn't reccomend you do that with your quest lenses unless they were severely scratched.

Some people find that stick on lens protectors also help disguise scratches and prevent new ones.

One of the advantages of having to use prescription lenses is at least those protect the irreplaceable headset ones from scratching.

AS the others have said already. If it doesn't affect anything, don't worry about it.

If you do decide to clean it or try to remove it, be very careful, I have heard horror stories.

If you've used spectacles with the quest then that's extremely likely. I've got prescription lenses for my Quest partly to prevent this, but it also makes it easier to take on and off.
