There are 2 lesions here. The large one is of unknown cause but is a few days old. The yellow border is normal healing of the oral mucosa. The smaller red area ventral to the cut is probably bruising from the altered bit position. This may have been from hand walking with a chain with pressure against very sharp teeth, but it is uncertain.
