New betta - need information about type.

I had a small tank just lying around wasting space, and decided to get a betta. I looked around, considered some discount veil tails, had my eye on some very pretty half moons, was tempted by some super deltas...

And then, I saw this guy on a local breeder's page.
He was nothing like the others I was looking at. It was love at first sight.
I have him on order, and he will be on his way to me on Monday. The breeder listing is just "Show Plakad line 636" - can any of you give me more info in his coloring and type?

Thank you!

Not too sure about tail type, but he is definitely a marble and possibly have dragon scaling (?).

According to the breeder, he is 4 months old - if that is any help.

Are these positive traits? He was painfully expensive, so I have to wonder.
I have heard that multicolor is a "flaw" - is marbling similar in that it is something unwanted?
I don't plan to breed him (now at least, who knows what the future will bring), but am quite curious if he is something special or whether he is just special to me.

Well it depends if the breeder was trying to get pure colors. I personally don't think multicolor it a flaw, but I could be wrong. Marble is just what you call a betta who looks like that, as far as I know marbling is not a bad thing. He might be a young HM if he's only 4 months. But i'm not to sure.
