Looks like pigeon pox, caused by infected mosquito's. There's not much you can do about it, these lesions will eventually get dry and fall off in a couple of weeks time. Is he able to eat and drink by himself?

Yes it seems like pox. Pls separate this bird from others and give supportive care and he should heal as the virus runs its course.
In the meantime if he doesn't eat by his own, you will have to hand feed him.

See if you can get hold of probiotics and vitamins for pigeons, and also apple cider vinegar (add 5 ml to 2 l of drinking water). This will all give him a boost to speed up the healing process. Sometimes they develop wet pox (lesions in the mouth) and this is often fatal. Hopefully this one only has the dry form.

Pox can take up to 4 weeks to heal, so patience is the keyword here. Once a bird is healed from this disease, they will be immune to it for the rest of his life. As long as he can still see from the other eye and is eating by himself, he will be ok. So you just need to give him time and plse don't try to remove the crust over the eye, it will dry up and fall off eventually.
