Question Betta looks like he ate a marble?

I came home after a few days vacation and found one of my bettas looking as if he has eaten a marble, he is huge in his uppersection resembling that of a ballon molly. I'm not sure what the cause or how to help him?

I'm not sure what the problem could be. If it is not overfeeding then it could be SBD or the dreaded Dropsy.
Are his scales sticking out at all? I would fast him and see how that goes.

If his fins look they're "pineconing" out, then I'm sorry but he has dropsy. I haven't experienced that, so I don't how to treat it, or even if it can be.

Sounds like he just might be over fed.
