Question Two mouths??

Hi, i just got a new plakat betta yesterday and noticed something I havent seen in another fish before...
Hes perfectly healthy and I think its potentially a birth defect,
but he has whay looks like two mouths? One on top of the other.
The first is a double mouth which is quite big... And he breathes from it. The other one is permanent open and part of the bigger mouth, which is what he uses to eat food with.
Is this normal...?
He definitely has no sign of anything else... And I am quite sure he's 100% healthy.

Sorry, I am as newbie as newbie can b when it comes to bettas. I'm hoping other more experienced members reply soon. So far I have found Hallyx and OldFishLady to be extremely knowledgable.

Sounds a little like Bazooka Joe, he has a small opening on the bridge of his nose if you want to call it that. He is a PK too

Could be a parasitic twin but probably a big nose.

He could of had a parasitic twin, an extreme birth defect ( from improper breeding ) or he could have cut it, or got in a fight, which damaged his lip.
