I recently found this little guy roaming around the area. I got him and saw he has a lump not sure what it is. I’m worried about him. It’s not avian pox? What do I do?

Quail will sometimes form those lumps on top of their beaks. It's thought that its caused by constantly bumping their head into the wire cage, trying to find a way out. It isn't cancerous or any thing that's contagious.
