Hey there! The broken tail feather is not a cause for concern. It’s not bleeding, and will fall out shortly. Baby feathers are very fragile and the tails especially are a mess. My three month old has the same look. When the first molt is complete, the feathers will be much stronger. Expect the first molt to be the roughest looking!

Tail feathers are not as critical for flying as wing feathers, this small difference will not throw him off. All good!
