It's possible he has a tumor...or maybe an internal bacterial infection?

Have you tried anti parasite pellets? You can try making your own using the fizz tablets. I used 1/4 of a tablet and put it into a betta cup and dropped in a few normal food pellets. After a few minutes i fished them out and fed them to the betta I was treating. it seemed to work since he recovered.

Parasite guard by tetra, available at your local petsmart. I think that, along with epsom salt, saved my fish

Yeah, he's still not getting any better. I could be overthinking it, but his belly looks bigger now.

Gonna try and order some stuff online.
