Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about your guy. I always caution owners when they are using scissors to remove mats of fur from dogs and cats. I see the occasional case at my ER where the skin is accidentally cut in doing this. As far as this situation with your guy. That dandruff like material under that mat may just be some dander that has built up as he couldn't groom that area well while that mat was there. If there is no other areas of this flaking that you can find on him, chances are that he'll groom this are and as long as no mats are forming again, it will start to look like the rest of his skin / fur.
