Peeling only in the middle
Look for shoe paint. Works on pleather. Lightly sand first to get it smoother then use 2-3 coats.

Leather can crack from drying out. After your repair treat your leather and “feed”
it some moisture so it doesn’t dry out more.
Im not sure —if you are looking for repair it might be to restain.
My son sucessfully restored his pleather sofa wear - using a ( brown) leather paint from Amazon. Very unnoticeable - impressive repair.....very slight difference in sheen. You could polish on top I suppose.
This product has very positive reviews on Amazon, might be worth consideration.

I have tried a number of things but the most successful is: lightly sand then clip a piece of the fabric underneath or in an unseen area. I cut a scrap from inside my cup holders of my love seat. Take the scrap to Home Depot or Lowe's to match eggshell latex paint. I then added 1 part paint to 1 part textile medium (it can be found at any craft store) to keep the paint from washing off. The match is perfect and unless you know, you can't tell it's been repaired. I'm very pleased with this method.
