This IS fin rot right?

I've been treating Bob for fin rot for the past 4 days and wanted to make sure that is what he really has. We go away no the 10th so I want to do all I can before I leave him for 5 days. I have been doing 100% changes for 4 days, adding garlic juice to his food. I don't really see an improvement but he had a couple pin holes that might be gone.

tbh it doesnt look like he has anything to me... very rarely fins will be perfect like we see them on show bettas on google. if i were you id stop any medication, just add some aquarium salt, and do 100% water changes every 2-3 days....

I have had him isolated with salt water and was soaking his food in garlic, no meds at this point.

Wow, my 3yr olds idea of getting a pet has made me an obsessed fish momma. If he's healthy I want MORE.

^^^ well curling fins isnt fin rot... its actually water quality iirc. are you using a water conditioner every time after water changes?
tbh he looks very healthy to me and i wouldnt worry or stress him out. id say chill, relax and see what happens. fin curling cannot be reversed, and its not finrot and he doesnt have ick.
