That's what I'm thinking, especially if his behavior is totally normal. I lost my dalmatian betta a few months ago to old age, or I would have taken a look at his pectorals to see if he had spots. :/ But since your guy seems to be acting okay, I think it's most likely patterning.

:/ Well . . . as I said earlier, there is only one parasite that would manifest on the fish's fins and body as black spots/specks. But fish lice (aka argulus) are quite a bit bigger than the specks you're describing and are not common on bettas, if ever. So although it's not common for it to look 3D, I can pretty much rule out fish lice. Maybe it's an optical illusion? But the most important thing is he is acting healthy. :)
