Do his rays split again at the end? He might be a combtail or a single ray crowntail. Also, no one can ever be sure of the age of pet store bettas, but I would guess somewhere around 4-6 months for him? Don't take my word on it though. I would ask someone who breeds bettas, as they would know the growth rate of the fry.

If it splits again, then he's a crowntail. The 180 caudal fin ... if each tip reaches a point where it makes a full 180 means that he's actually a halfsun. Here's what a halfsun looks like for crowntails.

CT's can also have 4 rays, the ray count doesn't matter as much to whether it is a halfsun or a regular CT. It's the reduction of the webbing that matters. What you posted Kiara is actually a regular CT

Here's two articles about CT: http://bettysplendens.com/articles/p...?articleid=943
and the Combtail/Halfsun: http://bettysplendens.com/articles/p...articleid=1482

To be considered halfsun it needs to have more than 50% webbing and needs to hit the 180 degree spread when flared. Combtail just needs to have more than 50% webbing as was stated but can be any type as far as Delta or Veil.

So in conclusion, he looks like a regular CT to me.

I'd also say crowntail. If you can get better pics it might help to have him flare at something.
Combtails are not really a type moreso than a mutt variant between VT and CT. And they're harder to regulate and predict. I bought my combtail with a full CoT spread and then he grew and now it's completely different but still blended like combtails should be. Basically, you'll mostly see the spikes are shorter and ill formed.
