A small glass vase doesn't hold heat very well and the water will always be a couple of degrees colder than the room he's in. There's also not a lot of space in that vase.
If you ever want to upgrade your tank so it's not too expensive, all petshops have kritter keepers and a 2 or 3 gallon is perfect for a betta. You can also get a heater for about 10 or 15$ and a thermometer (to check if the water isn't too hot or cold) is usually about 2 or 3 $. Food for thought.
I agree. Were not trying to sound mean, just trying to help your little guy out :)
In cooler temperatures they're less active & more prone to disease & illness.
Let us know if you have any questions, Hun. He's a cute betta :)
