Divided 10 gallon

Im planning to divide my 10 gallon tank for another betta.
My problems are:
The divider does not have holes. So no water circulation in other side???
There is only filter in one side.
Will my betta jump through the divider,??
How often should i clean the tank if i have a divider???
Will the betta in the filter side get stressed due to the filter current??

With a solid divider, a filter on either side is preferred. A pair of sponge filters would work well. What kind of filter do you have?

Many members use "craft mesh" dividers.

It also evens out the temperature.

A member on here once had a fantastic idea for their divided tank, and if I were to try a divided tank I would follow their idea. You would need to have two dividers, and they would have to have holes. If possible, can you drill holes into your solid divider, would you have two dividers?

The way they did the set up was dividing the tank into three compartments. The end compartment were the same size but the middle compartment was only the size to house the filter and the heater. This allows both Betta compartments to be filtered and heated the same, the risk of Bettas getting injured or stuck on the filter intake tube or the heater is gone, and should a Betta get through their divider there still would be a second one to keep him from the other Betta.

I divided my 5g that way. It works OK.

I no longer divide tanks. It's safer and more comfortable for the Betta to each have their own tank.

In my opinion, a 10g should house a Betta and some friends. That's just me.

Yes, I think I read that on Practical Fish Keeping somewhere, but I could never find it again so I just paraphrased what I remembered. :/
