He's a double tail.
The very bottom is called the anal fin. The two in the middle are the two tail lobes (which makes him a double tail). The last split on the top is his dorsal fin, which is very big! But it's normal for double tails to have huge dorsals. :)

He could be a half-moon, can you get him to flare his fins out?

Not rare, but everyone wants them. :p He's still adjusting to his new home, so maybe you're right for leaving him.

He has ONE split in his tail, the other splits are because those are different fins. ONE split divides things into TWO, he is a doubletail.

Regarding the temperature, even though your room temperature is 26C, the water temperature is much lower, making it only 22 or 24. Ideally the WATER temperature should be around 26/27, which can either be achieved by a heater (very easy to find for a 5/6 gal Chi) or by heating your whole house to around 30 deg, LOL.
