Exclamation Please help with my friends fish

Hey, guys. You all know that I have a female betta named Sunshine. So, this is not about her or me. Just FYI.

My friend is housing her male betta in a 1/2 gallon un-heated fish bowl. She changes the water once a month (cringe) and feeds him frozen blood worms and a mix of food in a plastic baggy about 3 times a day.

He is currently at the top of the tank on his side. He occasionally tries to right himself, but right after he is rightsideup, he slowly floats onto his side. He has what kinda looks like finrot, too. :/

I told her to put a little extra of the aquarium salt in there and to stop feeding him so often. I also told her to do complete water changes and 50% ones once a week.

I am assuming he has fin rot and a swim-bladder issue... Ideas? Thoughts? Help?
