Tried to feel for abnormalities but could not. No lumps or wounds. Seems to be lower ribcage on his left side. (If looking at him from the front/face).

I am so sorry to see that no one has reached out to you before now. Can you give me additional information on how Winston is at this time? What breed is he? Is this only pain when he slides off the couch or also when walking or picked up?
