Keep the water extra-clean to prevent infection and speed healing, and he'll probably be just fine. :)

If he's frequently hurting himself on the decor then it might need to be removed, but oscars are big and clumsy and it's not uncommon for them to occasionally get a cut or bruise... usually it looks worse than it really is and they heal up just fine. Sometimes my big guy will get spooked in the middle of the night and cut or bruise himself by running into his driftwood, but he usually heals up in a day or two.

I would suggest getting a bottle of Melafix and if you don't already have it, some aquarium salt. These are what I use to help heal those cuts and scratches my big guys get trying to move around the decor or for when they have the occasional spats and someone gets hurt. While you can't use Melafix on bettas, it is a main stay in my Fish 911 box since at one time most of my stock was cichlids.
