Curled Ventral fin.

Just in the past week my betta's ventral fin has become really curled, and an odd white color. The white is just coloring, so it isn't fungal or anything of that matter.

However I just noticed that it really is starting to curl pretty bad tonight.

Is that anything? Or just natural. I know that curling can be natural, but does the white color come with it?

Pretty hard, yes. If that is the cause, is it dangerous?

not it isnt. it will just affect the aesthetics of the fins and healing speed of ripped fins.

One of my bettas has really curly fins because I have really hard water. I don't know about the coloring though.
