I am so sorry to hear about your betta! This could be due to his tail getting ripped on something in the tank:( Keep his water clean and it should heal up nicely on its own. You can raise the tank temp, ensure that he has plenty of protein and add a little aquarium salt to the water to encourage growth.

You should also look for sources where he could have injured his tail.

Hope this helps!
