Friend's Betta - What kind, what's wrong?

Wasn't sure where to post this, but on the hopeful note I'm wrong...what do you guys think of this betta? Is he healthy? is that fin rot? Is he a normal looking round-tail? I've only ever had crown-tail and veil-tail, so not sure how different round-tail fins can get...but his dorsal just looks super bad to me.

He looks like a she. Definitely fin rot. I can't verify but, it looks like she has white spots on her body that are ick like. You can post more photos and ask around for help in the Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies section of the forum. Good luck.
