It could be anything,but a cut,would rule out allergies...maybe he just got into a tight spot,a spot where he was not supposed to go and got hurt.
At least my cats are always trying to sqeeze into strange places
But if it's no better for a week,I probably would take him to the vet too..good luck!

One of mine got a bite from her sibling (she obviously bit too hard) and it left a really bad place on the back of her neck. It would heal, then scab over, only to start all over again, if they wrestled again.

I had to make a harness bandage for her to heal. Worked great.

Let me know, markymark if you want to know more, or you should be able to search on this site, for "bandage a cat" and see the post from June.

Good luck with your cat...
