A little bit of aquarium salt should help speed along the fin recovery. Other than that, a few more water changes that normal would also help greatly. No need for medications just for some tears. Also, some bettas just have more ratty fins that others, so it could simply be how he is. Pictures would help, and are loved either way (:

Welcome to the forum! Yup, aquarium salt and more frequent water changes speeds up the recovery of fins, but as Codered said, some bettas just have more ratty fins than others.
Pictures would help (but we love them either way!)

A 2.5 gallon or larger would suffice. Along with a heater, gravel, a cave, some live/silk plants (heavily planted) A thermometer... All this usually costs me about 50 bucks... or my pet stores just really over-price things. Lights aren't a must, by the way... I've found my bettas hate them. Bettas prefer to be in the dark because it de-stresses them. (But obviously give them daily access to light.) People have put lights over their bettas, though. That is just my opinion.
