Don't know what kind of wound it would have been but it looks to have scabbed over ok.
As long as it's not weeping any puss or blood then it'll clear up over a few sheds. If it does then a trip to a vet to check for infection is a good idea.
If it comes off and there's raw skin under I'd give it a wipe with tamodine/betadine and keep the viv clean, probably just put newspaper in newspaper. Kep an eye on it.
