Suspecting my betta is bloated

Im kinda thinking my betta is bloated. I got him 3 days ago from a pet shop. He's colors are there, no missing scale, no SBD. Im intending to breed him with another female I got the same time I got him. Im feeding them frozen bloodworms 2 times after conditioning them. I feed 3 worms each time to them. The female always eats it in a minute. But the male could leave it there for a day. It flares very well, and made a bubblenest under a ketapang leaf. His body is huge, but I dont think it looks like its bloated. Am I feeding too much? and why isnt he eating? If I fed too much, what should I do?

Bloodworms aren't the best primary food source,and should be treated more like fish candy.

You should try getting pellet betta food,that may help.

Pictures would be good!

Im feeding them frozen bloodworms cos it would build more eggs in the female's sac. And I could also feed Freeze dried bloodworms to the male. Since the protein is 62%. Sorry for the large pics. Pls advise me!

By the looks of it he looks ok...maybe a little bloated but I can't really make it out becasue of the quality.

I think it's only minor,I wouldn't worry very much.If you are concerned though,just halt feedings for awhile.
