Can you attach a clear photo showing what you're seeing? Is he licking at all?
This most certainly could be a sting or bite if it was not there yesterday. You can keep this area clean with a mild soap cleaning the area 2x daily and applying neosporin between cleanings. I would recommend an ecollar too so he does not make it worse. If this does worsen, your vet needs to examine it to be sure it's not a small tumor or abscess that requires removal or debridement.Here's how to make an e-collar at home.
