In brief: Many possibilities

Your pain could be as a result of many different things.
One would need to do a thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams to determine the exact cause. Have it evaluated by a professional to see if you have fractured it of if it is just a soft tissue injury such as a sprain. You may have a ligamentus or a tendon injury or even a fracure.

In brief: Bruise to foot

The most likely cause would be from trauma or stepping on something.
If he does not remember any type of injury to the foot, it ma may have been from a broken capillary on the bottom of the foot leaking into the skin. If it does not improve, he should see a specialist to have this examined.
