Cold sore may have brushed the very slightest against his lips. Almost gone and scabs came off. Left with mark that hurts on my lip. Will he get it! ?

In brief: Possible

It is possible that he will get it but it is also possible that he already has the virus and has just not had an outbreak yet or that he didn't get exposed to enough virus to get it.
Wish I could give you a more definite answer but only time will tell for sure.
