Have you tried using a Q-Tip to lightly wipe the wound away? Can you tell what it is? Looks like shed..but it's kinda hard to tell..Have you flushed the wound?

If its not bothering him to much I would leave it..if hes eating fine shooting his tongue, able to drink etc...I think he should be okay without you doing anything. It may cause more stress to him than good if its not effecting him.

Keep us posted over the next week and see how he does.

Yeah, that looks like mouth rot. If the steps listed above don't help, you might need to take him to a vet and have them sample the infection to get the right drug.
