Is this finrot? Help please!

So I'm overly concerned with my fish's fins and I can't tell if there is something wrong. I'm not sure if they are ok but they just don't look right to me.

Sorry the images are a little blurry and dark. It was the best I could do for now. In the bottom photo you can see the curl of his top fin on the bottom the fins look a little tattered as well. Could anybody assess the condition of Ralphie's fins for me? If it's bad I want to take care of it now before it gets worse. And he has also been VERY hyperactive tonight and spazzy, swimming really fast and everything. Should I be concerned about this as well? Thanks !

It's hard for me to tell.....I see he's also clamping his fins.

Do salt baths for a few day and see how that improves.
Also, how warm is the water? Bettas do best in water that's 76-80F.
Also, clean his water super clean. I hear that sometimes fins curl and from poor water quality and will rot for sure if kept unclean.
