Poseidon has had so many threads it seems that he's probably an internet star. Everything that can go wrong with a goat has happened to him.

A few days ago he injured his leg and I tried to wrap it. It seemed to work for a while, but now that I take the wrapping off he still limps. He also has a bump at the top of his leg on the inside of the leg. It's not squishy, yet it's not firm. Kinda in the middle. What could be wrong?

If he broke a bone, I doubt he would have stopped limping with a bandage. Maybe with a splint he might have not limped so bad but not a bandage. Where do you mean when you say the top of his leg?
Wrapping a leg too tight can cause edema, as can a bruise or a strain- without seeing it, it's hard to tell - it could be anything. Which you probably know already lolo.
When you wrap a leg, you need to watch the pressure and whether there are any wrinkles or tight spots.
Is is warmer than the surrounding leg? Does he flinch when you touch it? If not, it's porbably edema or a hemotoma.
