He's probably just got big "lips." I had a betta like him and he was totally fine. However, a sideview picture would be more helpful to determine if it is actually an issue.

Just looks like he's got some big kissers, nothing to worry about. If he's eating and breathing fine then I'd disregard it as an issue.
