Looks like a slightly infected bite mark to me

You noticed any agression between the pair, onyx percs can be pretty nasty with each other.

If the fish isnt stressed and is eating fine, it will probably heal quite well, Its worth checking the water make sure all is in order though

Water looks good

Garlic will be a waste of time in this instance IMO I wouldnt bother, reserve it for times of low appetance as it can cause liver damage if over used!
