i know that the singulatities in black holes have masses ranging from 10 times our sun to millions upon millions of times our sun. i always just accepted the fact that all that matter was just "squished" into a point sized region. the other day i thought of 2 different ways that this makes sense. first, because space is so warped "da, its a black hole, it warps stuff" that while it appears to us as being as big as a pin point but if you were able to stand on the surface it could be millions of miles in diameter. the other one was that it just rips through space-time and actually only takes up the space of a pin point because in some ways it isnt even part of our universe.

if anyone knows which is the right one, or if its a different one, please let me know
