Looks like possible ammonia burns... What is your water change schedule?

He is also very skinny so he needs to eat. He does look like he has internal parasites as well...

For treatment:
Add stress coat to help him with the ammonia burn.
Add tannins/tea.
Perform 100% water changes (QT him if you can, makes treatment easier).
Increase temp to 80-82* if possible.
Treat him with API General Cure (petsmart) or Jungle's Parasite Clear fizz tablets (walmart).
You need to get him to the point where he feels comfortable enough to eat. Once he shows interest in food, offer him tons of frozen foods and a small pellet with at least 40% protein... He might be hesitant if the pellets are too big. The frozen foods will help him heal.
