Could it be a fungus?

Have you checked your water parameters? It looks like he's been burned. It could be high ammonia. I would move him out of the tank and put him in fresh water to see if it starts to look better. Make sure with that water you do daily changes to keep it clean. If he doesn't start to perk up then you should get a vet's opinion.

I would start with a water test and see what things look like first. I suppose it could possibly be an injury. Perhaps he had a little axolotl freak out and zoomed into the edge of one of those sharp rocks?

Good luck with them!
