Duncan Coral mouth ripped/infected?

https://imgur.com/a/W6PEO


Hi guys~ I have a 7 headed duncan coral, and this one head (of course which is pointing towards the display glass so I can obsess over) seems to have a rip/infection around its mouth.

Is there anything to do now except wait it out? If it's an infected head, should I use a dremel and cut it off?

There are two little heads growing out of this head which would be a bummer.

Thanks!

-edit - I have two clownfish, a firefish, 2 hermit crabs, 3 sexy shrimp, assorted snails.

The hermit crabs can't really reach it since it's branched out long and I can't imagine them being nimble enough to get to this head.

I wouldn't even mess with it. Given the right conditions it should heal up over time.

You're right, I took the wait it out approach. It actually got worse, and the hole got larger. Then it turned yellowy. Kind of like pus...

And then I stayed late at work and didnt interact with my tank for a day, and on the next day saw it completely healed! No hole, no yellow damaged tissue.

So hardy
