Clamped fins out of nowhere

My betta has clamped fins and is just lethargically floating at the top of his tank, he is eating whenever i put food in and is otherwise normal. This happened the day after i changed his water that day he was happily swimming around completely normal and over night has changed. What can i do to fix this?

How big is your tank? Do you have a filter?Heater? Do you use water conditioner? How often do you do water changes? and finally, do you do 25%,50%, or 100% water change when you do the water changes?

He might be cold, they all tend to clamp their fins when they are cold.
