Red face What tail type am I?

I got a betta today for my coming soon birthday. At the pet store he was labled Red longfinned dragonscale. There is nothing really longfinned about him???? I would like help figuring out what exactly he is.

Looks like he is a super-delta/possible HM. I think if you exercised him regularly with a mirror, you could get a slightly bigger spread on his tail.

Looks like Delta to me. If you get a pic of him flaring, it might help IDing his tail better. Beautiful guy!

My bettas: 6 boys and 8 sorority girls
Making it my mission to have all natural planted tanks!

he's not 180 at full flare so he's a delta.

long fin is anything not PK(short fin) since most dragons sold at pet stores are PK, it wasn't a /wrong/description of the fish just a little misleading xD

My wishlist:
-duckweed- -black and white marble, anything but VT-
-javamoss- -koi marble, anything but VT)
-hatchable brine shrimp eggs-
-indian almond leaves-
-Melano Halfmoon male-
-steel blue or royal blue CT or HM female-
