In brief: Here are some...

The possibilities to cause "a cut" there may be diaper rash, inadvertent over retracting foreskin for cleaning or something else by parents or others.
Just watch, wait, & see how the cut may heal by itself through cleansing & drying - not overdoing it. If not healing up as expected in 3-5 days, have doctor take a look at it and whenever getting worse. Best wish to his health...
