Why not contact the seller and see if he can send you another picture of this boy? They usually are pretty accommodating. I always ask the seller for a picture of a sibling female when I am thinking abou buying and they have it to me within a day. I'm sure they would with this male too. (I really like him lol I want you to get him)
Like I said I honesty don't think that this seller would sell deformed fish. I really don't.
It is really expensive to import, which is why I haven't done it yet, but its definitely worth it when you see the fish!
There are some people in the US that sell imports secondhand. I think hopdiggitty-something on AB does that. So does fishlover007, but he doesn't have any bettas right now. Fishlover007 is actually the importer in FL. Just something to look into if you need something cheaper. I got my avatar and the girl in my spawn log from fishlover, he doesn't get matching pairs so you just gotta look for what woul go with them best with their fish.
There are also a decent amount of good breeders in the US. I buy from chard56 a lot and have only been disappointed 1x and that was because i got DOA's. bettascapes, basement bettas, and polukoff also have some great fish but they aren't the fancy type that you get from importing.
Just some suggestions if you decide not To go this route!
