Fin rot??

I hope my pictures uploaded correctly this is my first post ever!

But this is Sammy, I rescued him from a lazy owner who kept him in a very small tank (cube shapes about 6inches by 6 inches by 6 inches) and horribly murkey water that hasn't been changed in about 4 months.

I've had him in a new bigger nearly 2 gallon bowl for about a week now, I'm fairly new to betta keeping, and don't know if he has fin rot?!? Any help would be appreciated!

Something has to be up here, I just got this picture from the previous owner, this it's the same fish and was apparently taken the day he was brought home from the petstore.

If you'll fill out the third-from-the-top sticky, people will be better equipped to help you. Did the previous owner have any decorations in the cube that could have torn his fins?

I'm so glad you rescued him.
