Does this look like fowl pox or anything? Or is it just injury from pecking? He is the only one of 5 roosters that have it??

Are you sure their just 2 months old? I'm just asking because they should still have very small pale combs and wattles at that age. They look like they should be laying now.

Yes it's fowl pox. My chickens are just getting over it (at least those in my first coop and run. Now the second coop of chickens are getting it. Unless it gets into their mouths and eyes it's not anything to be concerned about. They get it from mosquitos from what i've read. Egg production slowed down but that's the only problem i've really noticed. About the time i noticed it( I thought they were getting dirty because of the recent rains) they were already clearing up. It takes about 3 weeks to clear up. Good Luck
