Mouth problem

my partner has a group of phantom tetra, theyr mixed sex, and are very nice fish, however one seems to have the bottom of its mouth missing! it looks perfectly health, water conditions are fine, but where the bottom of its mouth should be theres just a hole, which it appears to suck food in through.

Any ideas what could be wrong, it is very difficult to get a photo as it likes to hide away, or is always moving. but i will try to get a snap if it helps
