Tail rot? Shed?

Beardie name(s)
My beardie Fire has this patch of discoloration at the tip of his tail, and I'm starting to worry that it's the start of tail rot. I know that tail rot is usually when the tip of the tail starts to turn black and shrivel up, but I'm still getting concerned. I thought that it was shed for like 4 months, but if it was, that would be an unreasonably long time for it to stay on him. he somehow got a little nick in his tail when I first got him (he was around 3/4 months old), but I'm not sure if that has anything to do with this. I just want to find out if it is tail rot before it spreads up his tail if it is. Here are some pics:

Not at all, his tail is fine. :) Sometimes when they are growing fast the part that shed last [ like the end of the tail or a foot ] will stay fresh looking as the rest of the body already starts getting darker , as his body is doing now.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
