It does look to be a little frayed. No sharp decorations or strong filter intake?

If those aren't present, then it's a good bet that it is tail biting. If that is the case, feed him throughout the day if possible (So if he eats 6 pellets a day, feed him 3-6 times to keep him occupied) and give him things to mess with, like bottle caps and ping pong balls. Also, change around his tank every so often during a water change to make it new to him and put different things for him to look at outside of his tank.

That could be it. He might be lonely or bored without you being there. Maybe try setting something new in front of his tank if you plan on being gone for a while.
