my puffer had a shell over his mouth I thought it was stuck , a week later he spit it out he was grinding his teeth down , this is also how he got his name Rudolph .
your guy is probably doing the same thing I wouldn't worry to much about it

this is mine with a shell stuck over his face

now the other pict looks like a finger leather

Fish are like lifesavers
They come in different colors

My dwarf puffs sometimes after feeding have small pieces of what they ate hanging onto their mouths and it usually falls off before the end of the day. I wouldn't sweat it.
My tanks (so far )
5.5 gallon Planted Dwarf Puffer tank (2 Dwarf Puffers and a lot of RCS!)
16 Gallon Planted
(GBR pair, 3 amano shrimp and a whole bunch of snails!)
