Post a picture.. it's much easier for people to identify
If it's not caused by fin nipping or fighting, then I'd recommend a big water change, perhaps 50% or so, add a bit of salt, and medicate with an antibiotic that is geared towards fin rot, perhaps Tetracycline. If he's otherwise healthy, I think that fin rot is pretty treatable.
