Depends on the betta. Also snails require hard water and high calcium in the water, this makes betta's prone to fin rot.

Green Nerite snails might be ok. They are a brackish water snail that adapts to freshwater, will not reproduce in freshwater, and has a flap that covers the hole when they retreat into shell.

That all depends on the personality of the Betta! Some are fine with it, others not so much.
