Could this be lip fold pyoderma?

Greetings, I signed up on the forum to see if I could get some input on one of my Shepherds. Not that I don't mind taking him to the vet, but he will need to be knocked out to look at his mouth.

I got home from work to see my 6yr old Jax getting extra attention from my other shepherd around his jowls. Which after close inspection I saw this. Could it be lip fold pyoderma?

Kind of looks like it, but I'm no vet. I can say one of my girls will get food, (especially Honest kitchen) trapped in small folds along her lower lip/ jaw. I clean her up occasionally with a damp paper towel or else the folds will get red and irritated.

Thanks for the reply Nigel. I'm going to keep a better eye on it from now on. Having 4 Shepherds, they are always in each other's faces. Never once thought there could be anything left. But I've also never come across this before.
