    sounds like something scared your koi so that it fled and ran into something.
    just fyi, when water parameters are off, koi can be alot more flighty than normal. have you run a battery of tests lately?

    Callum: Something similar occurred in a dealer's vat to some young fish involved in a club growing contest. Some developed the beginnings of an infection in the rubbed areas. Keep a watch on the situation.

    No the area is not swollen at tall, just that all the mouth has turned pink
