He also looks really skinny. I would get him on some high protien foods like NLS grow if you can get it. I'll help him pack on the weight quicker.
I agree that the fish is a doubletail, but it seems that his caudal split is not very deep for a doubletail. I thought fused fins is a rare mutation where all of the fins are fused?

As far as I know there are different levels of fused fins... Fused DT seem to be the most common (but still uncommon) and I also had a VT whose anal and caudal were fused just slightly.

Maybe a better definition of the OPs fish would be a doubletail with an incomplete split?

God bless you for rescuing the poor little dear. I agree with the assessment for fused DBT. :) He's so very pretty! I think your should name him Lucky or Aquamarine. Maybe Tiny. :) Sorry, I know, I stink at naming bettas, but I figured I'd have a go since no one else has... he's so cute! :D
