Looks like a slight swelling, possibly something has pierced his gumline.
You want to avoid infection. You can treat the area with a qtip with betadine or neosporin etc.
If it gets worse, see your vet, infection can spread over time and without apparent symptoms until the lizard is very sick. Dont wait start now. :)

Can you see inside his mouth and see if there is anything on the inside his mouth and not just the outside?

I didn't see the inside of his mouth, but he ate fine this morning. I just bought some neosporing, is it ok if I put it on while he's sleeping?
