Do the bubbles look like this? If so, it's just a bubble nest. :) Your little betta friend is happy!

Ugh i need to look this up, but i read if there is too much ammonia or nitrate or something in your tank if you make movement on the water it will create bubbles and the bubbles will stay on top of the water.

If they're on the sides and decorations it's just air bubbles from the new water. It has something to do with it being supersaturated with nitrogen but I can't remember the specifics. It's fine and normal. However, if they're on the top I really don't know what to tell you :/
