Issuse with tail (i think)

I got the best pictures i could of John. His tail had ripped once thought it was fin rot but thank god it wasn't.

Here's my question... Am i now seeing fin rot or its that white thin part regrowth?
an is there anything i should get to put in water to treat or help with regrowth? I'm so confused

Oh and on the first pic, does his fins looked clamped/curled?

I think he ate Mako. He looks kinda bloated. I wouldn't feed him for 24 hours since he is bloated. His fins don't look clamped to me. Looks like he is swimming normally. I have always used maracyn or maracyn 2 for fin rot. I have read that 100 percent water change helps too but you want to be sure to slowly acclimatize him to new water and that it is not more than 2 degrees difference in temp.

Bloat/Constipation

Usually within 24 hours you should see the bloat go down if he just ate too large of a meal and is not constipated. If it doesn't look any better within 24 hours then I would suggest feeding a small meal of daphnia. You will see some people post that you should feed a small plain english pea but I wouldn't advise it as I have read that it can do permanent damage to their digestive tract because bettas are made to eat meaty foods like insects and insect larvae and their digestive tract can't handle vegetable matter.
