Should I be worried?

So I was picking out Ice's hooves today, and I noticed that he had a piece of bedding stuck in his frog. I pulled it out, which didn't seem to hurt him, and I was just wondering if I should be worried or not. There wasn't any bleeding, it was just a little hole maybe 1 cm deep and probably less than 1 cm across. He wasn't lame on it as far as I can tell, and he didn't flinch when I pressed down on it.

If it's a hole it's probably a blown or old abscess. Keep an eye on it and keep it clean and he should be fine.

ETA: Reread the post, and if the hole is CAUSED by the piece of bedding, as long as there's no blood or pus coming out he should be fine.
