It is a static port. Used for the pitot static system.

Let me be more precise: it's a STANDBY static port

The square outline you see is is just a painted-on outline of the area to avoid during any operation that might damage the probe, such as a direct blast of de-icing fluid, or any physical contact by ground equipment.
