The squishy swelling went down a lot today that was under his eye but the hard spot between his eye and beak is still there. I'm cleaning the puss off the roof of his mouth as often as I can, it comes back pretty fast. snot flows out of that nostril continuously. Now that it won't come out of the eye what do I do? I tried pushing it out that way again and it didn't work. He's losing weight and I think I need to do something with it soon
He needs an antibiotic if not already. I would make an incision on top of the hard spot to get it out. Also when in the roof of the mouth instead of puncture I would try to make an incision from one side of the cyst to the other side to try and prevent it from filling back up with pus again. If I'm giving bad advice please somebody correct me. This is just what makes sense to me.

I thought you were squeezing pus out of both the eye lid and the roof of the mouth. Probably will need to make an incision were that hard spot is to get it out and milk the rest of the puss out of the incision area. Double check with casportpony. She has more experience with this than I do. I'm just try to help from what I think would be the best option but casportpony might have better advice than I do.
