Are you sure he's not a double-tail betta? My betta is a double-tail. It's just another tail-type like halfoon or veiltail.

Its hard to tell anything from your pictures. Perhaps his fins are a little curled from the exposure to ammonia in the pet store? How big is his tank, how often are you cleaning it and how much water do you change?

How are your tank temps? The tip of his tail looks to be blackish.

From not seeing, I would assume this:

Double tail with large tail, in a small cup. Most likely the water was dirty and his tail was always against something like the bottom of the cup or the side with the fecal matter. Could be minor finrot going on, or it might just straighten out on its own.

As normal I would suggest mild salt in the tank, and to keep a close eye on him.

Put him in a tank... You didnt mention him being in anything at all but the pics show the cup...
