Is the scratch line in Prisoners of the sun removed by mistake?

In the old verion of Prisoners of the sun, when Tintin has flown with the condor, he has a scratch line on his right cheek (side 30, panel 1) but in the new version the scratch line is gone. Has it been removed by mistake or is it just old dust?

After that Tintin has a band aid on his right cheek, so my theory is that it had been removed by mistake, maybe an autocleaning program, the other theory is has it been removed because it would be more child friendly, not so violent?
