minor fin rot and food to big for baby betta

still no name for my double halfmoon baby betta... but i have noticed a decent improvment on him swimming and relaxing. i was taking some photos earlier when i noticed that the very tip of his tails are a blackish color. but i only have the gravel and super soft live plants in the tank. i did note that when he was surfacing to eat that his tails kept on getting in the way..
also when i fed him he would take in the peice and attemp to chew it and spit it out... kind of like it was to big for his little mouth
so does he have a minor case of fin rot? and if so how do i treat it?
how do i make the food easier for him to chew as well?

A picture would help with diagnosing fin rot but the blackish ends does sound right. As for feeding just break up the pellets before you feed him. Cutting or smashing will work
