I'm going to move this to the General Discussion Forum - I don't see any discussions resulting from it, so not really applicable for the Advanced Discussion Forum

If there is some strange scab on the inside and outside of his mouth, and he has no appetite, take him to the vet. We can't really help without seeing it, so a picture might be useful, but I'd take him to a vet especially if it is affecting his appetite.

Good luck, a picture might be useful and let us know what the vet says! :)

If I were to take a stab at guessing, Id say abscess. But obviously, with no pictures and not a qualified veterinarian, I have no idea. Seek medical help from vet.

Yeah, I'd agree with Brad's thought. I know you said there is no pus, but reptiles don't form the same kind of pus as mammals - instead of liquid, a wax-like substance is formed.

Please let us know what the vet diagnoses! Good luck.

Oh, and if you don't already have a vet, you can use this list to find one in your area:
