I would treat the goldfish with an antibiotic such as MelaFix or Maracyn.
The sore could become infected and turn into an ulcer. I had a similar thing happen to one of my goldfish. If you know what the fish got caught on, I would remove it so it does not happen again.
Extra water changes will also help keep an infection from setting in.
Good luck!
