holding my fingers with the tips on frets. I've been trying to do a D chord, but I am unable to keep my third finger from touching the e string. Is there anything I can do except keep practicing.

Thanks everyone.

Middle finger on E string, ring finger on B string, index on G string. If you've got all that, try to make your fingers a little more perpendicular to the plane of the fretboard.
I'm that dude with the fro.

Is your thumb too far up the back of the neck?

+1 or are you pushing your wrist forward to put the third finger down?

Bend your fingers.
Can't stress how important it is for people starting guitar to bend their fingers if they are trying to play a chord.
