I'm confused. I know that the origional dragon had the white/silver body, and colored fins. I bought a blue female dragon at a betta show, and she was called a dragon. Maybe the definition has changed?

What are you actually asking?

What you like or dislike is your personal preference (color).
He is a great CT, balanced fins with a HM spread. His only flaw is the rays could be a bit firmer. But that's no big deal.

My question is; what do you plan to do with him? He is not dragon scaled so he doesn't fit your "dragon CT" plan. He looks like he's from a cambodian line.

Take a fry F2a and F2b and breed them.
Full disclaimer: I am totally new to betta breeding. (I do know a little about genetics and plant breeding). I may get myself into trouble by offering this suggestion, but I am more than happy to be corrected by the more experienced people here.

I also understand the feeling of figuring out a problem and solving it myself, maybe you are feeling that way too.

Anyway.

I don't know if dragon characteristics are dominant or recessive, but we do know that the veil tail trait is hard to get rid of.

Also, some breeders have observed spawns can take on more characteristics from the female parent.

With all that in mind, I would suggest:

Cross you crown tail femaile to the dragon male.

Select a male from the spawn and cross it back to its mother. I know that sounds kind of gross, but we are not talking about humans here. You will be concentrating the genes that lead to the crown tail trait. With plants, this is done all the time.

From there, I would see what you have, and re-evaluate your strategy, concentrating on the two traits that you are selecting for.

I also really want a dragonscale crowntail. Luckily, I have a pretty crowntail female, but I don't know when I could attempt it with my male.
