Most likely, nothing is wrong with him. Keep his water clean and warm so that he is healthy. Bubble nests don't indicate that a fish is happy, they make them because that's what they do. They mark territories and are used for breeding. My betta did the same thing, he stopped making nests for a few months. If you show him a female, he might make on again.

AlphaBetta is absolutely right. Bubble nest is not indication of the health at all. In fact i saw a lot of sick bettas in the store that still had bubble nest in the cup. I had 10 bettas and i would say may be 4 of them making it. My 5.5 years old betta may be built it a few times in his life , but obviously he is old and happy grandpa. So don't worry. The symptoms that you would worry are behavior changes(lay on the bottom more than usually, hanging on the top in one spot, darting, refusing to eat..etc), visual symptoms on his body.
