My son has 97...

My son has 97 Camry he tried prying a stuck oil filter now the new filter won't seat because of damage to area. Is there a way to Chang the part the filter seats up to? It looks as if there may be but just wanna make sure I know what I'm up against. (Son not a mechanic and just turn 21 trying to b self sufficient) pls help

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your last oil change?

Before this one it was a year he just bought the car used and the sticker in the window indicates a year and about 12000 miles ago

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Camry yourself? What have you tried so far?

I need to know if I can replace the part that the oil filter screws into or onto
