Moved into an apartment with a beardie, concerned

Hi! A few months ago I moved out and into an apartment with some roomates, one including a bearded dragon! I’ve never personally owned a beardie, but I have fallen in love with my friends pet, bathing him, feeding him, etc. From the first time I saw Ruby I noticed something off about his tail, and my friend just brushed it off and told me “that’s how he was when I got him” and I didn’t think about it much further, doing more research recently though I’m really worried he could have tail rot. I believe he is in a 50 gallon tank with a ReptiSun light. Is this tail rot, or am I just looking to much into things?
