Tail looks fine a little kinked but no black and it looks like its gonna shed-- tail rot will start w/ nips bites and pinches that have cut off circulation --
Thank you! I have been researching for the last 3 days and I still didn't understand if he had tail rot or no

Kinks happen for a variety of reasons, and aren't a worry, With tail rot the flesh is actually dying/dead. Also it is normal for their tails to become vary dark right before and during shed, or when they are cool, stressed ect.
