Unhappy My betta has black scales

I have a red betta named steve, and he has recently got some black scales. what is wrong with him? is he okay? I heard that this was called ammonia burns, but im not sure. I moved him to a slightly larger area, and am changing his water more frequently. I can't tell if they're going away or not. please help!!!!!!!!!

i got him a while ago, and when i got him he was completely red, and then he got some purple. he just started to get some black and gray sales here and there. not a whole bunch.

I'm actually incredibly interested in ideas that this could be. My red crowntail recently developed some black scales on his side(just a few) and around his gills(well, the part that flares out at least). I was also told it could be ammonia burns, but they haven't gone away... O.o
