Is it velvet?!

Recently (about a month ago), I treated my Betta fish for ich. He's been acting perfectly fine since then he's eating well, swimming around, active all day.

But just today I noticed something odd on him. It resembles gold specks on his jaw, and underneath his gills, and I know that gold in certain light is a sign of velvet.

I'm providing a couple picturea to identify whether or not it's a parasite. Please help me out!

Does it look like dust? If no, then no it is not velvet. Sometimes if the fish is fairly new this "copper" or "gold" look is just from previous ammonia burns. Many of my rescues had that, without any problems. I also find on darker faced bettas it is more noticeable.

I think that it is velvet. If it spreads then yes it is velvet and if no it is just ammonia burn. Dont give it anymore than 3 days though
