Injured Starfish need help! please!

hey guys i have 1 bahamama moma starfish and he looks like he got nipped by one of my red emerald crabs. there is a small peice of him missing ( its about a square 1/8'' inch around) will he recover from this cause he has flattened out a bit and is not as active as he usually is?

any suggestions?

I wouldn't mess with him, they are fully capable of healing by themselves in short order. Providing he's not dinner anymore for the hermit.
