    Usually frostbite starts white. It will turn black if tissue dies. Fungus, maybe?

    post a picture if you can, someone else had a roo that had frost bite and it had some yellow which was pus, might want to put some neosporin on it just in case.

    I think it's frostbite. It can appear yellow or white. Neosporin/bag balm and I've also heard betadine will help.

    If I put neosporin on, will the comb be ok? Did I catch it early enough?

    The part thats yellow will probably turn black and fall off eventually sorry to say, hopefully your aren't showing him. Just watch it for infection, but he should be fine.
