Trailing poop = constipation?

I noticed today that my beta had a small trail of poop and i have never noticed him like this before, he is acting normal as far as i cann tell. should i fast him and treat him for constipation?

the tank is heated and filtered.

Edit: it did fall off shortly after but i'm still concerned about him.

What brand of food do you feed him?
How often do you feed him?
How much do you feed each time?

Since it fell off, I would not worry about it. However, I've asked the above questions to get an idea of his diet. If they eat a high-protein diet, they tend to not be constipated.

this time around I bought flake food because he was getting tired of his old food, it's called bettamin and it appears to be mostly protein items in it.
I feed him once in the morning, a pinch or two depending on how fast he is eating. I might give him a treat at night occasionally and they came with his old food which HBH brand.
