Very pretty boy! Though I hate to burst your bubble about his coloring, there have been no documented cases of blue dragons as of yet.

Really? He looks to me like he had those "dragon" scales.

Interestingly, so far this characteristic silvery/white metallic layerhas not been observed in darkbodied bettas with a classical iridescentcolor (steel blue, turquoise or royal blue) of the body and finnage.The picture shows an imaginary example of what the authors mean withthis.
In case of a dark bodied "dragons" with a classical iridescent base,the silvery/white appearance seems to be masked although based onmacroscopic observation (with the naked eye) their scaling definitelyseems to differ from a regular metallic fish by being more solid. Therehave been reports of red and black dragons with a blueish shine ontheir scaling but so far no real blue "dragons" with this typicalthick, silvery/white scaling have been developed. It would beinteresting to find out whether it is possible to obtain a the thick,silvery/white metallic layer back after crossing a blue or copper"dragon" as depicted above to a red, yellow, orange or black betta.
Here's the "imaginary" picture of a blue dragon that goes with the article-
