Total newbie to the world of bettas - pics

Can some one help me out, please? I'm new to this forum and new to bettas. I just acquired 4 bettas (3 were rescues from an event that I was a photographer at - they were centerpieces, and 1 I bought at Petco), and would like to know what I got and if they look healthy. The pink/purple dude from Petco is a veiltail, I know, and I'm pretty sure the turquoise/iridescent guy is too. What about the other two boys? The orange one likes to flare a lot, and seems to have more rounded fins (also, do his fins seem curled?), and the dark blue dude seems to have similar fins, but rarely flares. I've had the rescues for a week now since last Saturday, and the Petco one since Wednesday.

I know it's a lot of questions. Sorry! Like I said, I'm a total newbie! Thanks in advance for any help and advice!

Thank you! I figured they were all veiltails, but wasn't 100% sure as the orange dude just looks a little different. They are all still awaiting names... of which my children have no end of suggestions... lol!
