If it's already scarred then you won't really be able to eliminate or reverse the scarring - it's permanent. If it was just a superficial scratch then he might get away with it but if it needed gluing then I should think it will scar. You can always try bio-oil though, to help the scar fade and be less noticeable, or ask your GP? And make sure your DS doesn't pick at the scab.
Heal gel. It was developed by Doctors for just this purpose. I haven't used it myself but have seen so many good things written about it that it might be worth a look. The very best to you and your little one!
Your LO is very young and healthy children have great healing power. I wouldn't wory too much. I don't know the severity of the cut, it's likely it will heal incredibly well, with or without help. Make sure he eats well, helps everything.
When my son cut his forehead we used Savlon healing gel until it had completely healed and then Bio Oil, and kept his fringe long to make sure they didn't catch the sun, which we were told would darken them. The scars were pink for several months and I didn't think the Bio Oil was working, but they did fade to almost invisible silvery lines after about nine months and now you'd never know they were there unless you were looking for them. He's quite proud of them though and still tells the story over two years later! (And it's not even a particularly good story - 'I was running in crocs and I fell over' )
