New Platinum Yellow HMPK from PetCo (Pic Heavy)

Last Saturday I found a yellow HMPK at my local PetCo. He was there a week before and I had wanted to buy him then, but I wasn't too sure about it. After thinking it over, I decided I had to have him! He is definitely Halfmoon Plakat as he has multiple rays and a 180 spread. He is about 2 inches long and as thick as if not thicker than my thumb.
He's got random spots of red coloring on ventral and looks as if he might marble, as he has darker patches on his head. We've haven't decided on a permanent name but we call him Tiny or The Yellow Submarine. I noticed that he is very shy and not as food driven as my other bettas.
Sorry some of the pics are blurry.

Is that BF pattern development I see!? Eeeeek! How cute!? You could combine the name and call him "The Tiny Yellow Submarine"!

Great pick-up.

My local PetCo has a similar looking plakat and a nice red one as well.

Definitely some nice finds to be had there.

Thanks for all the replies!
I'm really glad I took him home; I was choosing between him and another platinum betta with red splotches, but I wound up with him :)
