What kind of tail is my betta?

I have a betta that I got at petco as a baby betta. I know that it must be a boy as his fins continue to grow but they are starting to look very pointy. I am not sure what kind of tail he is can anyone help?

I'm pretty sure he/she is a CT, a very young one at that. She/he looks somewhat bloated to me (unless you had just fed him/her) so you might want to watch out for that. Adorable betta!

I think twice a day is plenty. I know it's different for babies though, maybe you could cut back on the amount of pebbles at each feeding.

He's either a shorttail/plakat or a delta I'm thinking delta I need to see him flare to confirm. He can't be a crown tail cause there's no spikes on any of his fins. He's a male cause of the long ventral fin

but his ventral fin is very point and his dorsal fin is also when he flares he's very young he just grew quickly well his body not much... also on the feeding I read it and it says 4 pebbles and I do the worms because the lady at the fish department says that bettas love the worms..

He doesn't seem to flare is that a problem? I tried the mirror thing.. I am not a betta expert so he might have flared without me seeing..
