Betta Fish Help

Hi, I just got my fish the other day, his name is Moriarty, he's a beautiful purple-ish blue and red elephant ear male Betta. I noticed that today he seems to have a few scales flaking off near his head. Now he has this castle that has a tiny window that he likes to stick his head into. Is that what caused his scales to almost come off?

It's a distinct possibility, but hard to tell without a picture. You may want to add some AQ Salt so he doesnt get an infection from missing scales though.  0716Want Custom Betta Art Prints? -->
