I have 4 brown Leghorns and one of them (Beetle) has a large comb that is turning a little purple on it's tips. Should I be concerned? Please help! New to raising chickens!

Can you post a picture. If small round random areas could be pecking? Or if you have hardware cloth walls or windows could be abrasions? If you are in a freezing climate, could be frost bite?

Also, large combs may have trouble with poor circulation. During hot weather/stress//cold weatherhard exercise, the comb may turn slightly purple.
