what do you think of this little guy?

Hello I had a spawn about 2 1/2 months ago and this little red copper came out. I just want to get an idea of what a show betta looks like.
thanks for your comments guys.

looks good from here, so far, though time will tell. if it's a male, ventrals are a tad bit long (should end at the longest point of the anal fin) but hopefully the anal will grow out. decent balance from what i can tell. good scaling.

When the ventrals are down, their length mustn't be longer than the longest point of the anal fin. A good ventral should be wide in the shape of a blade and the same length of the anal fin.

Looks like a sow pk. Tail should be like the Halfmoon's "D". He is pretty good there.. just a tad rounded on the top edge. Ventrals appear to have good length and there is some slope to the anal. Would like a little more and a better anal point. Should come down as long as the ventrals.

Hoping the distortion I see in the body is from a round container ..?? If he is HM balance will be off with the anal slant. Like to see the tail rays longer if HM as well.

Definitely male.

Hi Basement Betta
Thank you for your input. Yes I had him in a round container when I took this picture I have some new ones if you would like to see them. And maybe you can give me your input on him. Thank you :)
