COMMENTS
When a square ends with 4 (A273375), this square may end with precisely one 4, two 4's or three 4's (A328886).
This sequence is infinite as each 2*(10^m + 1), m >= 1 or 2*(10^m + 4), m >= 2 is a term.
Numbers 2, 22, 222, ..., 2*(10^k - 1) / 9, (k >= 1), as well as numbers 2228, 22228, ..., 2*(10^k + 52) / 9, (k >= 4) are terms and have no digits 0. - Marius A. Burtea, Oct 24 2021

EXAMPLE
22 is a term since 22^2 = 484.
638 is not a term since 638^2 = 407044.
668 is not a term since 668^2 = 446224.
