Default Little hole in beak

Help my budgie has strange little hole near his cere and it appears to be darkened also. Is this a bruise or something? He didn't got hurt. I didn't saw any bleeding nor changes to his behaviour. I don't even see him being nervous or in pain just

Are you talking about the blue budgie? The little dark mark doesn’t look like anything I’d worry about. There is a small bit of chipping there; maybe he did have an impact with something and has a small injury. It should fade away within weeks if it’s an injury.

Is it an actual "hole" that goes all the way through the beak?

No it doesn't. There is no bleeding. But he has that bad habit of rubbing his face in the cage. I checked the cage in every angle and there was no pointy object. There was even no change in his behavior in fact he is more hormonal now and he keeps on chasing the female

Yeah the blue one. I don't really know what happened but he's on hormone now. I keep the cover to fool them about the time so they should be calming now. It doesn't worry me thay much but im only asking what the hell was that and it is chipped. But as i said no bleeding nor changes in appetite. He is in is usual routine

The problem here is we have no avian vet. It will take me about 5 hours and crossing the straight to get there.

Since it is not an actual "hole" I would not be overly concerned. As RavensGryf has said, if it is an injury, it will grow out as the beak grows (like your fingernails)

Keep an eye on him to ensure it doesn't get worse.

If you are having problems with the two birds wanting to mate and rearranging their cage frequently, limiting the light they get to 8 hours a day and limiting the amount of protein in their diet isn't working well enough, you may need to separate them into individual cages until they come out of condition.

Okay so here's the situation. I got home from work and checked them and i noticed that he bled. Luckily the blood clotted and there are no splatter everywhere. I separated them immediately and checked his injury. The blood has dried so it didn't need my intervention. I'll observe him till the little wound will heal. It's my first time seeing this and it seems it's in their kissing ritual that he got hurt. As on my last post about behavior he keeps on chasing the female until he corners her and having to pose in missionary type maybe he really wants to mate that bad.
Do i have to clean the dried blood or leave it that way? If i have to clean it what type disinfectant i have to use thanks

It seems that your female is attacking the male, if he persists in trying to mate and she is not willing things can get nasty and she could hurt him even more severely. Was he bleeding from his cere? As long as it has dried I would leave it alone and keep the birds separated for now.

I did not see anything to worry about with your bird. At worst, it would be minor.

Not the cere but the beak near his cere. Last time he also got hurt and there was blood drop. I immediately stopped it using flour. The male has a bad habit that sometimes he mated here while eating. But that was long ago
