Is it like a pimple or more like a mole or wart?
What type of container do you feed him out of?
How long has it been there?
I was hoping to get a respnse back but also want you to have an answer. Often a place like this on the lip is due to an oral papilloma much like a wart. Dogs get them on their lips and chins normally but they can be found between the toes as well. It usually clears up on its own in a few weeks. You can read more about this here:
Sometimes a pup will just be alittle clumsy and get a scrape on the muzzle. If it is not a raised area like a wart, then you might try some neosporin or triple antibiotic on the area to help it heal if it is still an issue. Some dogs do develop an allergic reaction to plastic that also can cause sores like you saw. Let me know if this was helpful and if so take the time to rate. If you want to supply the additional information, perhaps I can supply a more informed answer for you.
