Okay I know how dumb this may sound but, if you have a cut in your mouth (from like biting your togue) what are the risks of giving oral sex to a guy while the cut is still healing (no condom)

Anytime one has a wound or cut on the mouth or genitls, STI risks are going to be higher, for both partners. As well, risks are then open to bloodborne infections, like Hepatitis.
So, the risks of STIs for unprotected oral sex are still for the same infections as without a wound, with the addition of bloodborne infections, they're just even higher per the likelihood of transmission.
(Suffice it to say, unprotected oral is never advised here unless all safer sex practices, including barrier use and screenings, have ben in play with both partners for at least six months, cut or no.)
