Hes very pretty :)
Is there anything 'sharp' in the tank?
Like plastic plants or rocks?
If not, he IS probably a Double veil tail :)

I think that is tail damage. A double tail will have a very long dorsal fin in addition to having two lobes. It looks like he split his fin to me.

It looks like damage to me. Typically, a DTs dorsal fin is exaggerated. This may be because the genes cause the top and bottom of the fish to mimic each other.

Note the large dorsal.

If you're still not sure read these...

I would treat him for fin damage.
