Tail just hanging

My 1 year old has just let his tail hang for the last couple days.. He will not curl it up on his back. Could they be something wrong?

For this long, I would get him checked with a vet.

I would call the vet if this is new. Cash has what they call a lazy tail, but he always has.

After feeling his tail.. I feel a lump about 1/2 an inch from the base of the tail.. It seems to be painful to him. Hopefully he just sprained it. He usually has it curled up and wagging all the time. I'm calling the vet at 8:00 am.. I will be their first call of the day.
