Help! Weird joined hair (too afraid to cut it off)

So I was patting my dog and I noticed a weird bump of hair so I thought it was just his long furr getting dirty and sticking together so I try and loosen it up a bit with my fingers and then I just decided to just trim it with a pair of scissors like I've done before when he would get clumps of hair stuck together but this time I notice it will not cut off nearly as easy and so I thought it might be a mite or something worse but surely it looks just like a clump of regular furr but I notice a small wound right as I cut it and I stopped where I was afraid I'd cut something important and leave my pupper injured. I decided to join this forum real quick hoping to get some answers so who ever replies thank you I won't be trying to cut it off until I'm sure it's just furr.

If it looks safe to cut off higher up, away from the skin then try that and see if you can then see anything more. The wound might be from a scab and then when the scab came off the hair attached loosened with it, but that's just a guess. You could also try washing the area to see if anything clearer is revealed.

Is your dog picking (chewing, biting, scratching) at the clump and creating the wound?
