    It does look like a water quality related issue. What is your maintenance routine and what are your water parameters?

    Assuming your water quality is good, or wasn't and has been addressed, and that this is still ongoing I would treat with a medication geared towards treating external bacterial infections. Anti-ulcer is a favourite of mine.

    Is it just me, or is one of his barbels facing the wrong way like an ingrown hair or something?

    Nope, you are correct. The damage or a growth around the whisker I'm assuming.

    It's not just you, and that redness where it attaches is concerning as well.

    he dosent producing eanough amonia to cause spikes
    I'm not so sure about that, OP hasn't replied since April, but I'd check params first, as already advised
