It could be a bonk on the head, or possibly him rubbing against the divider (especially if made of mesh). Is it fuzzy or anything like that?

And that's good you removed him- just make sure he's warm enough but dont roast him on that tank :B

For now, Id say keep him in QT for a little bit and watch to see if it gets bigger, worsens, etc. Keep his water changes frequent and keep him happy. Its probably a bump to the noggin, IMO, but I cant be sure.
