Small injury

So I fed my porcupine puffer a green emerald crab today. He ate it fine but it did grab his head . There is a small brown spot at the spot he got bit. Is it serious or am I just paranoid . He's acting normal of that helps.

he'll be fine. the crab won't, however. you might want to try snails. they won't bite back and the shells will wear down it's teeth. otherwise, you'll have to cut the tooth short every so often.
