Hurt beta

Our beta got stuck in a tank figure. While trying to dislodge him, he suffered some cuts. He is currently laying on the bottom of the tank. Only swiming once in awhile. Need help. What should I do? Thanks

How bad are the cuts? Are they just scrapes or did he get gouged? There are some meds that are made specifically for sores and open wounds but I wouldn't want to do that first.

Can you add a little epsom salt or aquarium salt to the water? I would keep him warm and wrap a towel around the tank to keep it dark for a while to let him relax.
