It was his smell. Smaug had never encountered a hobbit before. He did not recognize the smell of him, but could tell that he had been with the dwarves.

Yes AND no. Yes because when Thorin, Bilbo and the others went into his lair, he deliberately laid on his stomach on his treasure. Why else; to defend this weak spot! No because he forgot. Bilbo tricked Smaug twice into revealing it. The first was during his conversation with Bilbo. Smaug was very polite with Bilbo listening to his riddles. Convinced that Bilbo did not mean him any harm, Smaug rolled over on his back. Bilbo saw the spot where the scale was missing somewhere on Smaug's chest. The second time was when Smaug realised that Bilbo ran away with a golden two handled cup. This pushed Smaug's infuriation to its boiling point. He started destroying things and eating the dwarfs ponies and when he got to Long Lake, he was flying so high that the chink in Smaug's armor was visible. Bard the Bowman shot him in that very spot, Smaug didn't see it coming.
