Opinions on my fish's health? (pics)

Hey guys,

So, its been two weeks with Steve in his new tank, and I just want to make sure he is staying healthy and not susceptible to some of the diseases I read about. Attached is a picture of his fins. I have noticed white spots under his head, but they seem uniform and harmless, but of course, you guys know more!

I did get a picture of the spots, but the flash on my phone turned them shiny and golden, I thought that would have lead to a misdiagnosis

Are they under his chin? And do they look silvery? If it's uniform and silvery, and located under his chin, this could just be normal coloring.

For example, see post#6 in the December photo contest (Mahachai's photo):

More info would make sure we're not missing anything: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=49233

Also a grey beard indicates stress, but nothing can be seen from the photo you're sharing.
