    Even if we were veterinary professionals here, there is no way we could possible diagnose or treat your cat over a computer. He is badly injured, perhaps with brain damage and needs to go to the vet as soon as you can get him in. I would even recommend an emergency vet clinic. If he doesn't have a regular vet, now is the time to get one. It sounds like, if he's an outdoor cat that he was either abused by someone or hit by a car. He needs medical help RIGHT NOW. Please get off the computer and take him to a vet for help.

    She may have an abscess, which is a wound that gets infected. The wound crusts closed but the infection is still brewing beneath. Without treatment, the infection spreads internally and if its bad enough, it can kill the animal. Abscesses are very painful and if it is located near the mouth, the animal will be unable to eat. Abscesses are only treatable with medication and being drained by a veterinarian. This cat needs treatment immediately, as it is likely suffering. Please seek treatment for this poor soul.
