Injured newborn kit! Help! Graphic photos attached..

Hi
Our rabbit gave birth last night/this morning. When I went and found the new babies 1 was lovely and healthy.. the other not so much. Looks like it's head may have been sliced open by mum's nail or something? Definitely the smaller of the two that were born.

What should I do? Just leave it and see how it goes? Or end it's pain?
(First time having new baby rabbits in our house!)

Just leave it 😂 NEW

I would just let it flow if its an abses attempt to pop it and clean it if there is anyway to clean the wound do so but after tgat just leave the baby alone usually mamma bunny knows what to do and the baby will most likely be okay.
