What Type Of Crowntail???

I was doing my usual business here. Answer all I can that I think is right in the Unanswered Section. And of course other stuff, but I'm getting off topic.
I have taken interest in Crowntail Betta Fish for some reason. Oh, and not because of owning one, but because of their finnage. I know some people think Half-Moons & Plakats, and Giants are the best. But I like Crowntails. They are not my favorite, but just curious. I have heard of Normal Crowntails, Double Ray, Double Double Ray, and so forth. I was just wondering if my fish is Normal or a Ray. Here's a Picture of him.



Do you see his Tail Fin? There are like 2 spikes on a few. I'm just wondering if this a Normal Crowntail or something else. Thanks!!! ;)
I have also seen other Betta's fins like this. I was just wondering on it's type of form.

a "ray" is "webbings" there are singles, doubles, and multi's. before the webbings spread out like spikes, there combined, most of the time it is two rays, some times more. sorry am horrible at explaining things

I know what rays on a CT are. I was unsure what the OP meant by regular or ray.

Also your definition is extremely flawed.

Rays refer to the branching itself. Two rays up to I believe sixteen. Rays are in all betta forms since that's how the fins are supported.

CTs have reduced webbing. Anything under 33% reduction is considered a combtail. 33% or over reduction is a CT.
