What's with the color change, King Dedede?

Yea, something is with King Dedede,

he has these colors on his anal fin: purple, pink and orange.

The purple has spread to his tail, the orange has spread to some of his scales.

But I don't know what's happening... can anyone tell me?

(I'll include a pic later)

Need a pic. From your other posts, Dedede is a royal blue betta. Any orange or purple might indicate fin rot which has progressed to his body. You have been told more than once about water changes, asking the same questions all over the place in different threads is difficult for you and us to help you.
Clean the water.
Add 1 tsp of aq salt per gallon (PRE-MIXED) and please make ure it's aquarium salt and NOT salt for human consumption. Only leave him on the salt for 10 days.

Please provide a pic but this sounds bad.

sounds normal to me. :I as long as his fins remain the same size, and don't start looking ratty or torn, i'd not worry about it. it's not uncommon for bettas to gain or lose color as they age. i had a blue betta who ended up a totally different shade of blue, had white on his dorsal fin, and his entire anal fin ended up almost totally red by the time he passed.

yea, he got fin rot... I noticed yesterday.

I'm not allowed to change the water, though.
I'm not allowed to get AQ salt for a while...
I'm a terrible betta owner.

(PS. my mom is FORCING me to take care of my betta but my parents won't let me do water changes sometimes!!)

ugh.

I feel guilty.

I should've tried to stop my mom from buying my bettas.

Getting forced to do everything, no meds for sick betta.

Should I euthanize him or let him survive?

OH DON"T EUTHANIZE.
I thought you meant the color spread from the tips to the body. No this color is probably fine if its coming from his body out.
Are you looking for attention though? Seriously? We tell you what needs to be done and you're not allowed. So why keep asking. You get the same responses every time ...
That's a pretty pathetic looking fish, though.
