He's proabably going "What the heck are you??" I'm sure your betta will be just fine.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Corys are not aggressive fish, atleast not from my knowledge, also corys are bottom feeders which means they siphon/suck rather than nip. I'm gonna assume that your new to fish (don't punish me if im wrong) and your just being a little overprotective I was too and still am so Im gonna guess that your cory just got a little to close to your betta, trust me you have nothing to worry about
