How cold is it where you are? That looks like frostbite to me. To help prevent more, eliminate drafts in the coop and put some Vaseline on the comb/wattles. As for treating the frostbite that he has right now, there isn't much you can do. The bad looking parts will probably scab up and fall off in a few weeks; the only thing you need to watch out for is infection.

Thank u!!! We just got him 2 days ago and it has been pretty chilly of the nights but warm daily. He seems pretty healthy other than that spot. Today was the first day I got to get close and check him out. Watching him a hour or so earlier he was getting aroubd good and eating. I just wanted to make sure we wasn't gonna lose him and see what I can do! My son is who got him and he's 10. He wants to learn all he can and wanting more lol thanks again!
