I can't really tell from the photo, but there is something on the nose. I'd take him to the vet just to be safe.

Does he bar chew? It may have been damaged when bar chewing or on something rough in his cage. An insect bit or sting is also possible.
If he does not seem to be behaving as normal I would have it looked at by a vet. Check the cage carefully for any toys that may have sharp bits on them too.

As far as I can tell it looks like a small cut or abrasion in the second photo, as has been said that could happen from bar chewing or rubbing against anything rough or sharp in the cage, give everything a check over to be sure nothing in there could be causing a problem.
If it is just a small cut it should heal quickly, if not take him to the vet & have it looked at.
