His scales aren't falling off by themselves, mr betta is ripping them off rubbing into something. I have that plastic TWIZZLER plant on the right, but I didn't put it in the tank because I thought the edges were too sharp.

The only way to really tell is to watch him for a while. Make sure you stay far enough away from the tank so he doesn't think you're going to feed him.

I would recommend reading a book/magazine across the room and looking up every 10 minutes to observe him.

I have no idea, because I still can't really tell what your betta's WHOLE tank looks like.

A really active betta has a higher chance of ripping his fins. Mine doesn't do anything. Just sits all day long posing, flexing his fins every so often, he yawns a LOT.
