Hi Sir, My 8 months child got small cut by cloth pin and small drop of blood comes out should I give him tetanus injection. He have already received his DTP vaccination.

No not needed. DPT will protect him from tetanus. But just look for signs of infection like swelling or fever or loss of appetite.
