    Hello. Sorry about that. Considering the gap based on your description, the skin might grow if it's not too deep. Also, wound of this size will also take some to cover up. If the injury is deep, that is, affecting more layers of your skin, it might even take a longer time or heal with a big scar which might affect movement at your knee joint. I will advise you to see a plastic surgeon for further evaluation of the wound for proper care. Take care
