EARLY ONSET TAIL ROT??

Hi there,
I was giving my baby beardie a bath and notices that just the very tip of his tail is dark! I know shedding can make their tails darker, but it seemed like just the tip instead of a gradient from lighter to farther (which I assume is more like a shed). It is very small, not too concerning, but if I should act fast I will... I'm not sure if I should just keep an eye on it or inspect and call a vet... I also have no idea how to attach a photo on here lol

Unless it has some sort of injurie like a pinch or been nipped by another dragon it is more than likely NOT tail rot but shed --- can you post a different pic of the tail in question like closer pic of the area your talking about
