Exclamation Change of Plans... (Help!)

So I went to Petco to get my baby Betta. We could not find them so we began to look at adult Betta fish. I saw this very interesting fish. He was a Halfmoon Plakat red and white spotted.. I was about to check out and take him home instead of a baby betta. Then in the line I noticed a bump under his chin I believe. I freak out since the place was closing soon (we had no idea) I put him back and left afraid he was unhealthy as I read bumps were unhealthy. Was this mild lump a sickness or something?



His lump look like the one bellow. I'm confused. I love that fish. Should I go back and get him if I can? I would say his lump isn't that big though. Is there a medicene to solve this if it's an issue?

Are you sure he wasn't just flaring? Because that's what the Betta in the above picture is doing, and that's totally normal. The "lump" in that case is just his beard.

was it right under his head? or was it like this:



If it's like the one I posted, it could be because he's bloated.
But if it's right under his chin/mouth it could be a tumor.

It was like the lump in my post. I love him to bits though so if there is anyway to help him with medicene or if he is healthy I need to know. D:
