At first this looked like the Yellow Coris Wrasse bit the cleaner wrasse.  (Hence my earlier post) At first it looked like a small bite that exactly matched the size of the coris wrasse's mouth and he was chasing the cleaner wrasse around aggressively. Today I am not so sure if it is getting better or we have something worse! What is your opinion?

I'm no fish expert but that definitely looks like some kind of wound. I would keep a close eye on it and hopefully it gets better

You should be ok as long as your tank is healthy. But watch it to make sure it heals. If it gets worse or discolored, you may need to quarantine and treat it, otherwise, you may have a dead fish if it gets bad enough.
