It is hard to see, but could be from anything from aggression, scrapped on rock while trying to hide, or some sort of disease.
If it worsens you will need to treat in a hospital tank.

just remember mandarins are scaleless fish so avoid copper at all costs

What other fish are in the tank? Was he in a tank with other mandarins before you got him? Is it healing yet?
