Brief Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCm

Detailed Answer:
As I can see from these photos there is no need for stitches. Skin in this area is firm enough and even deeper wounds heal very well without suturing. Also, if more than 6 hours passed from injury then suturing must not be done. YOu should just keep this area clean and apply some antiseptic on it. Also, try to avoid runnng and jumping for 2 days. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards
