sick new betta fish?!

I brought my new betta home a few hours ago. He is a crown tail called Fippy. He appeared to settle well into his new 20L tank (he is the only fish in there); which is heated at 28 degrees and has a filter. He has been swimming around quite actively and exploring his new home. However I have just noticed that he has a pale cotton wool/slimey like subtance on the edges on his fins and a little bit near one of his gills. There does not appear to be any on his head or body.

He also seems to be resting quite a bit now - does anyone know what i can do?

Hello and Flippy is sure s cute name for your new Betta ! I have a crown tail too.
I am not sure what they could be unless its his slime coat you are seeing, could you post a picture, that would help us to know better what it might be. The slime coat is good and nothing to worry about its normal and they need it. Its mostly clear looking and slimy . Flippy sounds very happy in his new home.
