It could either be fin-rot or he's growing back his fins.

Does it look more brown or white?? If its brown its prob fin-rot.

Do a water change on his tank and add some salt if it is fin-rot and if you catch onto on time it should clear up really fast.

Its a clear-ish white, correct? Thats what it looks like from the picture. Just part of his coloring, or maybe a little re-growth from a bit of damage he'd had before you got him. Unless its fuzzy looking, I wouldn't worry too much.

Yup, it looks to me like its just his coloring or re-growth ;) If it were finrot, it would be black around the edges and his tail would be getting smaller.
