    If it is a bump without a hole and not just a featherless spot, it might be filled with pus. In that case, puncturing it with a scalpel or similar might be the way to go, to allow the pus to escape. If it feels like there is pus inside, I'd puncture it. But from the picture, it looks like a boinking injury or possibly over mating and I've never heard of either causing abscesses.

    Might have a sinus infection
    I posted about operating on my little guy with a bump and got a pea sized tumor
    He healed nicely but still has sight issues
    Do a search for my post or search sinus infection in chickens on the Web that is where I got my info and help operating
