I am trying to cut part of my image, but the cut option isn't available, does anyone know why that is and how to resolve this?

I select part of the image I want to delete and when I go to Edit > Cut, the Cut option is dulled out so I cannot select it, what am I doing wrong?

The selected Layer appears to be a Smart Object.
You could use a Layer Mask to hide the selected part (Layer > Layer Mask > Hide Selection).

Or copy instead of cutting.
