Help! Something wrong with bettas mouth!

I put my three bettas in a 3 way divided 10 gallon tank today. My new betta and one of my older ones is doing fine but my one is wrong. I made a buffer for my filter so the water splits in two and he's been hanging out between the two waterways and now for some reason his mouth is stuck open. He's blowing bubbles and going to the top to breathe but his mouth is stuck open. I don't know whats wrong with him. Please help.

Yeah there's areation but it's on the opposite side of the tank but the water flows through the dividers. He seems okay this morning though. The tank is new...I just put all my fish in it yesterday so I guess it was just stress from being in the new tank because he seemed fine this morning.

I didn't cycle but I'm watching for ammonia every day and as soon as I see ammonia I'll do a water change.

They seem to be doing okay right now. I had my two bettas without a filter for months so I should be alright.

Yup I rinsed out the tank. And my bettas seem perfectly fine except the one keeps getting underneath the baffle on my filter and just sits there.
