Exclamation Help! Does he have fin rot?

Hi. I have a 10-day-old active betta fish called Happy, and I wanted to know if he has fin rot. he has a split in his upper fin & slightly fraying fins (see pictures) If you think he does have fin rot, how do i treat it? I love Happy very much & want to help him out... oh, & his filtered 5g is unheated, is that the problem? Please help.

Yes, not having a heater is a problem. Bettas need warm water, the lack of such could be leading him to bite. His tail looks like its just a split and tail biting. What kind of plants/decorations do you have in the tank and how often do you change the water.
