My bearded dragon attacked my plastic yellow tongs that my brother was using to place some crickets in the enclosure and now my bearded dragon keeps rubbing his face on the rock features and the ground in his enclosure.

My dragon is only 7 months old.

He is due a shed and keeps going into this cave that i bought him recently.

His appetite for food seems to be fine, but i picked him up today and on the very tip of his mouth around where the mouth opens the scale right at the tip of his mouth seems to be lifted and not attatched to his skin properly (only slightly but very noticeable when his mouth is closed), what shall i do? Will it heal?

I've checked the inside of his mouth and there is no signs of problems in there, no signs of mouth rot or discolouration, just the outside :(

<<< Notice the tip

From the sounds of that you should get some advice from a vet,
My friends Waterdragon had what sounds like the same problem and it died only after a month of noticing it.

The water dragon was only 2 years old.
Yes it had its appetite still
as for the head rubbing e.t.c that is probs just the shed it sounds quite typical.

I really wouldnt advise you to wait get that checked straight away!: victory:
