something is wrong with finns fins

I noticed last night Finn's tail fin is looking very ragged ... unfortunately my.camera seems to have gone missing ( I got some pictures last night)

Its fine chunks have been ripped out of his fins ... that I know of there is nothing sharp in his tank and yes my tank is cycling but I have been doing daily changes ... maybe I am just a bad fish mommy

Posting pictures helps ALOT. But if you could describe it better, like, is there a black line on his fins, or holes in them, are they a clean cut or jagged... stuff like that

Filter? Fin nipping his own fins? Does he have any tank mates?

He does like to lay against the filter ... nope he is by himself. ...

I am also worried this could turn into fin rot if it isn't already ... how can I help him?

Sorry I can't see your pic for some reason. It won't typically turn into fin rot unless you have bad water quality. If you're doing regular water changes his fins should heal fine. I have a sorority & there is always someone with a damaged fin, I just do my weekly 50%+ water changes & there's no problem. I would make sure that filter isn't sucking his fins in any way.
