A white line in the location sounds like the fin might have been pinched and damaged. Is it possible it got caught in the filter intake or maybe the fish got the fin stuck in an ornament where it might have damaged it?

don't think it could get trapped in filter or ornaments but you never know thanks for your reply

Ok, so I have a question about the white tip. When I dropped my betta in his new fish tank tonight and turned his light on, I noticed that the two little fins or lines under his body had a white tip. Just curious if that is normal??

i think its normal... my red betta who I had for a 6 months now (yay!) has two white tips at the bottom of his two fins right below his "gills" ( u know, the thing that opens when bettas flares... I forget wat its called) i seen it there on him (firefly) since I bought him from the store.... he also has translucent black ends of his fins, but when I researched it, this means that he is still growing (?). The white tip, in my eyes is actually more white/ neon green. And I think that's normal... my firefly is very healthy and swims around alot... he jumps when he knows its feeding time. haha... i think as long as your betta's fin looks okay... like its not shredded, one of my bettas has either fin rot, or the plastic plants are shredding it, which I removed immediately when I saw this. g'luck!
