Torn Fins?

Hello, I'm posting about my betta's fins. He's a veiltail, and ever since I've had him (about a month now) the ends of his fins have been a little jaggedy. I don't think it's fin rot because he's really really active and exploratory, but I was just wondering if his fins are naturally a little rough around the edges or if they should smooth out over time?

Usually its a water quality thing.

-How big is his tank?
-Filtered/Heated?
-What are the water parameters?
-How often do you change the water? How much do you change?

Five gallon tank. Heated and filtered. PH is 7.3 or so. I just did a 100% water change a day ago.

Hmm in that case he might be a tail-biter. Either that or he is blowing his fins or maybe tearing them on something. Sounds like tailbiting though. Can you get a picture?
