Usually beardies tail ends will get darker, i once thought the same thing about my adult female but it sheds fine and hasn't withered like most tails do with tail rot.
Sometimes it can be shed and they get darker and then lighter then but other times its just normal.

It's O.K, no tail rot there. And a very light stroking with a toothbrush for a bit is fine if it's shedding but don't actually scrub it, that can irritate it.

It looks like he is just shedding. Also around the end of the tail is usually darker like that, so don't worry!
Fellow beardie owner, if you'd cry if your beardie died, then you need to see this.
