while a picture would help I suspect it may be an ear absence of some sort

I think David meant 'abscess' but Spell checker took over.
In which case a vet visit may be needed but if you can post a picture of it asap then members experienced with Tortoise problems can see if it is definitely that or something else and may be able to suggest things you can do to self treat.
