Medical Advice

My 6 month (thats when i got him anyway) old Betta developed a very swollen belly very quickly. He has been acting sick (staying on the bottom and not eating). He was on his back on the bottom this morning and I went to scoop him out but he swam away. I don't know what this lump is, as it developed overnight. Any ideas?
