Still need help please!!! Biting or fin rot!!'

I hope my pictures uploaded correctly this is my first post ever!

But this is Sammy, I rescued him from a lazy owner who kept him in a very small tank (cube shapes about 6inches by 6 inches by 6 inches) and horribly murkey water that hasn't been changed in about 4 months, and ****ty mardigraw beads and fake rhinestones as decorations.

This first picture was taken the day the previous owner brought him home from the pet stores, I'm going to post current pictures in a reply!

I've had him in a new bigger nearly 2 gallon bowl for about a week now, I'm fairly new to betta keeping, and don't know if he has fin rot?!? Any help would be appreciated!

I don't believe it is fin rot, no black out line or blood red tips on finnage! He does look taddered and I believe it was from poor water conditions.I am not an expert so take other's advice too! Just know with My guys after a few water changes and warm home and soft plants they did improve

Thank you! That's kinda what I've come to understand from reading other posts here, and perhaps the white outline is new fin growth?? I don't know I'm new at this, any and all advice is welcome!
