    Bro Stan, not sure you are referring to the tail section or the tail fin(caudal fin). If the tail section, it looks like secondary Hi to me. No skin defect from the photo.

    On the tail fin, it's either hi spot or pimple. If pimple, just scrap through with your nail and apply topical or Kenkona pond treatment. It should be fine.
