    Will his face's scratches leave scar?

    Will his face's scratches leave scar?

    Would his face scratches leave scar?

    Would is the past form of will, so in the sentences above the first sentence is the correct one? Is that right?

    Re: Will his face's scratches leave scar?

    Would is not just the past form of 'will', it also implies something is probable or may happen.
    'Will' implies certainty or something is sure to happen.

    Will the scratches on his face leave scars?
    Would the scratches on his face leave scars?.

    Both can be used.
