black dots on dorsal fin???

so I was just shining a light on my betta to see if he had velvet or something, but when I got to his dorsal fin, I saw black dots! I took away the light and looked somewhere else for a bit, then looked at my betta without the light, I still saw the black dots... in the picture, (attachment) I circled where the black dots were, but it was hard because I was using my DSI XL and it had no flash (one more thing, I'm not an expert on fish body parts, I don't know the names of all the fins, so I may have gotten the fin name wrong... please alert me in a private message and tell me the correct name of the fin )

I don't see it, sorry. Oh, and I found out that Black Spot Disease only appears on the body of the fish. It mostly strikes wild fishes so I doubt that's what his problem is. Yes, that is his Dorsal Fin. His tail is called a Caudal Fin and the fin that's at the bottom is his Anal Fin. The fins near his gills are called Pectoral Fins. And lastly the Ventrals. Those are the fins that are just below his gills and pectorals. That's most likely his color, I suppose.

the spots are perfectly harmless.
