What size tank and what are you ammonia and nitrite readings? It looks like, to me anyway, that theres some water quality issues going on.

More than likely he has bacterial fin rot. Get some Kanaplex and dose per instructions on the box.

Tank size, pH, ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, water change schedule and amount changed is all important if you could provide that.
