Betta Belly swollen?

I have a year old male betta.

I just got back from camp and my dad has been feeding him.

I noticed that his belly was swollen.

Is it dropsy or swim bladder disorder?

I changed his water and I keep him in a 1 gallon tank with a filter but no heater.

I usually feed him 4 pellets twice a day, but I might be feeding him to much...

I'll try to attach a picture after I post this

Any info at all would really help!
