Something wrong with his tail?

I noticed that the end of my betta's taiil has become white and i was wondering if is fungus, fin rot or just a change of color.

Looks to me to just be a change in color. Generally fin-rot is black at the ends, I believe.

Is it fuzzy at all?

Keep an eye on it. How are your water parameters? Do the edges fall off or look like they are falling off? Or getting shorter? Most of the males I have that get white tips, the white tips is growth from previous damage such as fin rot or tail biting.

Well I see his fins are a bit shorter, so it's possible :)
