Need help diagnosing

Can anyone let me know what this white spot is? The spot seems to be his scales pulling away and turning white. He also has some smaller grey spots on his other side closer to the tail. This is not his normal tank I have isolated him until I can figure out how to treat him. His tail is also not as flowing as it use to be.

I can't tell if this is a parasite of fungal issue. Or if he also has tail rot.
