Questions about my HM King I purchased from Petco (With some backstory)

Found this guy at Petco. He is a HM King and I'm not sure if he is a Mustard Gas or just a mutt.

I named him Leviathan, because he decided he does not like sharing a tank with corydoras and because he is HUGE.

He will be moved to a 5 gallon as soon as it finishes cycling... I just wanted to get him out of Petco when I found out he was there living in a cup for 2 months.... He had to curve his body to fit in the cup. The boy that checked me out said he had been changing his water daily and feeding him, and would have bought him if he didn't have another male in his tank.

I had to have him when I saw how interested he was in his surroundings. His colors have changed and he loves to watch TV and follows people. He is very active and I can't wait to get him into the filtered, heated tank.

Anyway, is he considered a Mustard Gas? Also, he has a spot on his dorsal fin where it looks like his fin was snapped and healed a bit weird. Was he injured when he was younger, or is this a deformity? Also, is it normal for a fish to have peach lips? ><

I don't see the picture, but from the other thread I don't believe he is a mustard gas. So sad though they should have larger cups for the kings. And they can have any color lips so I would not worry about that.

Edit: I looked again and yes I think he is a mustard gas lol

I had to edit my post because I forgot the pictures LOL. In the pic where he is following my phone around you can kind of see the weird break in his fin. Not very well. I suppose it doesn't really matter. He doesn't swim any different.
