clone or heal. Use the clone/heal tool...play around with it. It's pretty self explanatory.

Clone. Heal won't do a lot for you. You could also paint.

Make a selection of his head including the sunlit area. There are a number of ways to do this, but this is a case where you have strong contrast, so the magic wand tool should work very well. A higher tolerance of 50 or 60 should work fine. Once selected, use the eye dropper tool to select a neighboring color (he's not 100% black), and then using the paint brush, paint over the streak going right up to the edge. The selection will keep you painting within the lines.
