Goat hoof help needed

We are new to goats, so please no judgements.

We pulled out little goat, Lyle from the pasture today to trim his hooves. Honestly, we were a little late on this trimming but we had our vet train us on how to do it, and we have been doing our best to keep up on this task.
(And learned our lesson on letting it go a few weeks too long.)

What we found was that one side of one of the goat's rear hooves had grow in and over. It's difficult to explain, so I'll post a photo of how it looked after I trimmed it the best I could. I'm looking for advice on what to do now.
