Meet Samael

Hey guys, just wanted to show you all a pic of my boy, Samael. Yea, i meant to spell his name like that with an 'a'. He is a red VT and i bought him 6 months ago. He lives in a community tank with a couple of danios and some white clouds. He seems happy but i still dont know whats wrong with his dorsal fin, at the tip of it, the bones in the fin seem to 'crack' to the right and go back, giving it a weird look, from the top view, his looks a bit like this : __^_ something like that with a little part jutting out. Any ideas what it is or what i should do? He doesnt seem to mind it though.

There is actually no recovering if the betta is like this. Its just a bad variation from its family before. He should still act normal in swimming.

Or his fins could have been torn and they just healed like that- I have a betta with the same problem, and his dorsal fin was torn.

Very pretty boy!
