Faint stress stripes?

Hi all, I'm pretty new to bettas so I thought I'd check this with you guys ^^ For the past several days my betta's been flaring almost constantly at his reflection. It's usually only on one side of the tank so I put some white paper against it today and he's been fine so far.

He has some faint striping along his body but I don't know enough to tell if that's normal or if it could be stress stripes. I'd really like to know so I can keep an eye out for improvements :)

IMO, it doesn't appear to be stress stripes, but I'm not as experiences as most people here so hopefully you get a second opinion soon :) From my experience though, stress striped tend to be very prominent.

Ok, I wanted to be sure because I saw someone say that there were obvious stress stripes on another betta that looked pretty normal to me, so I wasn't sure what to look for. Thanks for the help ^^
