Not much. Depending upon the reason and how much is missing, it may or may not re-grow. Keep an eye on it for fungus though, if it was bitten off by some other fish (non-cory, they will not "bite" fish) in the store tank, it could fungus. But otherwise, leave it. Fish can manage without a tail.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
