My 9 week old kitten has this on his paw, I just noticed it today and Im trying to figure out what it could be. Him and my 7 month old cat play pretty rough sometimes so Im not sure if this could have happened during one of their rough house sessions or what? Thanks!

That looks like it could be ringworm.  I think you should take both kitties to the vet to have them looked over.

oh no that looks like its uncomfortable. vet visit. I couldn't tell if it was a bald spot or a wound or ringworm. by the way ringworm isn't a worm-its a fungal infection. the vet will be able to tell you how to treat if its infact this. but they will need to take samples and look at it under the microscope.
