    That looks like frostbite to me too. I'd follow the advice on here and use some Vaseline as well as some antibiotic cream like neosporin on there. I'd cover his entire comb every couple days until the temps warm up. Is there an issue with ventilation in your coop? Is he the only one with this problem or do you have others that are effected to a lesser degree??
