Thanks! I've read that dragons can sometimes go blind, is the blue part in his eye something to worry about? Right now he can see fine.

I have had a few dragons go blind, they did not have scales growing over their eyes. The extreme metallic covering on their scales gradually spread over their eyes as they got older.......

Your boy only has slight dragon covering and I highly doubt it will ever affect his eyes, the blue in his eye in pretty normal I have had bettas with that before and they were fine.
