Shredded fins

I am new to the betta adventure. So please, excuse the dumb questions I might ask. Just bought my first betta, Frank Jr., at Wally World. Wasn't looking for a fish, just picked up the little cup he was in, and I don't know if we made eye contact or not, but I had to have him. Have always loved animals and he is part of the family now and we want him to be as happy as him can be. First dumb question. Frank Jr.'s fins seem to be shredded. What is the problem?

Shredded fins could be from finrot. The water in those cups is usually filthy. Just keep his water clean.What size tank or bowl is he in? And ask all the questions you want. There are no dumb questions. :)

He seems healthy. He reacts to me coming to the tank and acts really frisky. His fins just seem stringy compared to all the pics I've seen on the net. Bare with me, I really want to learn all I can to make his life as good as it can be.
