Is this ich or part of a healing injury?

My a. Borellii had a fight a couple of days ago and I think the female injured the male on the pictures at some point. They were completely peaceful for the two months I have them now. He had a couple missing scales, those seem to bee recovering, and now I spotted two small white dots in the area. The photos do not show them very well, they are pretty much in the middle of his torso on the first one. The second one mostly shows the general area.
I suspect these dots to be Ich, can somebody help? Since my Aquariums never had white spot disease, I'm not familiar with how it would look like.

Ich appears as small, hard, white spot that look like small grains of salt. I don't see this on your fish. Keep an eye on the fish. If more spots develop, then medicate him. Otherwise I'd let him heal on his own.
