You'll need to gently restrain him and clean the wounds. Keep the cage extra clean and no dust baths until they heal. If they look red or swollen, aren't healing well or start to produce any pus, you'll want to have a vet see the chin ASAP. Don't put any Neosporin on it - if the chin licks it the Neosporin is effectively like ingesting the wrong antibiotic and can wreak havoc in their GI tract.
