Floyd has poop issues, lately they've been great and everything has been quite normal but he has some poop under his chin!
I've tried massaging it out but it's kinda dried under there. It's probably from his cecotropes, do you think he will be able to clean it himself or should i do something about it?
Just don't want to hurt him or let it get infected or something!
Thanks!

I wouldn't worry about it getting infected. Since it is on his chin it might be to hard for him to get off by himself. I would try getting a paper towel or a Q-tip wet to soften the poop so it will more easily come of the fur then try coaxing it out.

Also Floyd is adorable!

Yeah, dampening the area with warm water using a washcloth or paper towel (safe soap like Dawn is optional) and gently trying to work the poop out is your best bet (maybe saturate the area and wait a couple minutes for it to loosen up). If he could get it himself, he would've already done so - rabbits like to stay clean!
