    You may be looking at the "belly button" or naval as they call it. It is where the umbilical cord was attached in the egg. As long as the others don't peck it, it will be just fine, dry up, and heal in a few days.
     
  3. You need to remove him from his buddies until the sore heals. Otherwise they will probably pick him to death.
