First, is there any plants in his tank that can tear his fins? Take them out if so. Also, it does sound like it could be finrot. Go ahead and treat him as well.
I hope that helps!

Try the tissue or panty hose test. If it tears either, then chuck em. Do you have a heater in your tank?

I agree with Angelicscars and treat for fin rot.

Good luck!!

I agree with the test on the plants and also to treat for finrot.
Don't feel bad, I'm treating my two boys for fin rot. I'm also thinking about getting my first female soon, which will probably come from Walmart, so she might have it too.

You might want to look into getting one. Betta's like their water a constant 76-82 degrees F.
