Help!! Does he have fin problems?

So here is my Kookie. I originally thought he had just blown out his fins (as you can see the tears) but suddenly I noticed his fins may look a little strange ..
I need help ... Id this some kind of fin melt ?? Or is it that he is getting more coloring?

Besides the tears his dorsal fin looks a little strange to me. Please help me. He's so pretty and I don't want to over react or just ignore the problem!

To me it looks like the beginning of fin rot. Just change his water every second day for a week and you should see an improvement. That's what I usually do with mine. If the water is super clean his fins should heal up nicely.

Fin rot? He's always had the white edges... is it possibly fin melt? Either way I know it's a rot.. but most rots are when the tail edges are black right?

I've read that it can be either depending on the colour of the fish. Again I just keep my water really clean and it usually cures it. Also get a bottle of stress coat to help him adjust to all the water changes.
