Tire is less than 3 months old.

I thought it was cut at first but looking at the separation I am seeing it is most likely defective.

Couldnt let the dollar bill hold it together much longer, swapped tires for new one this morning.

Agree. Looks like damage from the outside.

Anyway, did you really need to trash it? Hard to tell from that angle, but it doesn't look like it's bulging. If it's not, I'd boot the inside and maybe put some rubber sealant on the outside, and keep riding.

Did you ride it on the side of a curb?, What pressure are you running? What does the rest of the tire look like?

It looks like a dollar bill is being used as a boot already.
