Drooping dorsal

Hey! :) I have a blue veiltail names Lil Sano. I didn't know a drooping dorsal was not good until like 5 seconds ago. I know they can happen when there isn't enough space or the betta feels cramped. Are there any other causes?

Drooping fins is often caused by too small of a ray that can't support the fins properly. This is when thin rayed long fins are crossed to thick rayed short fin.
