Description: Point contact spectroscopy reveals a gap-like feature above the magnetic and structural transition temperatures for underdoped $Ba(Fe_{1-x}Co_x)_2As_2$, $SrFe_2As_2$ and $Fe_{1+y}Te$. The conductance spectrum starts showing an enhancement at temperatures as high as 177 K for $BaFe_2As_2$ ($T_N$ $sim$ 132 K) and 250 K for $SrFe_2As_2$ ($T_N$ $sim$ 192 K). Possible origins for this enhancement are discussed in light of recent experimental claims of nematicity in these materials. We construct a modified phase diagram for Co-doped Ba122 showing a gap-like feature existing above $T_N$ and $T_S$ for the underdoped regime.
