Default Purple bump

Yesterday I discovered a purple sore between Harold's tail and butt. Does anyone know what this is and what I should do about it? He's eating, wheeling and pooping just fine. Thanks!

From the picture it looks like there's a light purple tinge to the skin around the area as well. I've never seen a purple sore/growth like that before so my instinct would be to get him to the vet, but I could just be overreacting.

I would also advise on taking him to the vet, you can never be too safe.

Okay, thanks for the advice. We're in the area of Boston that is in lock down, but perhaps we'll be able to take Harold in this afternoon.

Looks like maybe he got that bump pinched in something, and the rest is bruising?
