Did you try holding a mirror in front of him or another betta, that stimulates them to flare. Im pretty sure flaring isnt a sign of happiness though, but Im not sure.

Mine flares all the time but doesn't really respond to mirrors. It's strange.

Anyway, yeah, don't worry about no flaring. I haven't had many Bettas or anything, but I have done a lot of reading and it sounds like some just don't flare.

Now, if his fins are always TOTALLY tucked in and small looking, THEN you might have a problem.

My red copper halfmoon, Scooter (the beginning of my first line), flares at EVERYTHING, mirrors, fingers, even the food container I keep next to him.
