The betta you have is a bubblenester. The ones that keep the eggs like that are called Mouth Brooders, which is mostly the wild types.

lol. If he builds one, it's going to happen on his own schedule. Nothing you can really do except try to eliminate water movement on the surface and try to make him happy and comfy!
