The new guy. Platinum HMPK or something else?

My daughter (and I) cried on and off as we lost our VT male, Rooster, this week. Grief takes many forms... but my little one's comfort was to get a new fish. We visited a few shops, and didn't "connect" with any of the fish, but today I went in to get a new tank ornament for the remaining betta, and we saw "Edwin."

He's huge. Probably 2.5" or so. And he was in the smallest plastic cup I've every seen. 1/2 cup of water, tops. The store employee said that he had been in the store "about a month," but didn't know his age. So, no idea how old he is.

He was labeled as a Platinum HMPK. I guess that seems about right. Agree? Disagree?

Also... any concerns/ideas about the "clumping" where his anal fin meets his body?

Although hes got 4 rays, his tail looks too round and spadey, so hes probably a cross between trad pk and hmpk, a transitional pk. Very nice fish
