Exclamation New betta with growth on neck?

I'm not sure what it is. I bought him today for my little sister who is already in love with him so I want to make sure he isn't going to die. What is it?

Can you get a better pic? From the angle it looks a little like he's flaring to me. Are you talking about under his neck or am I looking in the wrong spot?

Yes under his neck and no he wasn't flaring. Someone said its his beard. Not sure if that's true.

That's what it looks like to me that's why I said he looks like he's flaring. Put a mirror in front of him to see if he does a full flare & you'll see if that's his beard or not. Since you just got him today I'd give him a couple days to see if it changes once he settles in better.

It's his beard. Males bettas have larger beards and they tend to hang out a bit under their chins.
