That looks like maybe stuck shed that has restricted blood flow and unfortunately killed the end of the tail. :(
i checked that myself there was no shed that was left there i always make sure as i never wanted this to happen to them i think its mayebe something else

These are mealworms. Those things are pupa. The mealworms turn into those for about three weeks and then turn into beetles. We have those in our cage and my gecko eats them. I don’t think that is the reason for it.
