Bettas are solitary fish and don't really appreciate tankmates. He's just doing what comes naturally to him. They are very territorial. He'll be ok by himself. Welcome to FishForum.

Sounds like you have a completely normal betta there.

btw, what size tank is he in? You really shouldn't consider tankmates with a betta unless there in a 10+ gallon tank..

What sort of friends did you put for him? You'll need very peaceful fish that don't nip or have long, colourful fins. Your tank also needs to be big, like ElmoFish mentioned...

Bettas are sometimes mean, fish are sometimes mean to bettas. Most of the time it doesn't work out. But your betta is normal.
