scales missing?

Today i noticed several scales on Dastan's face (above his nose) missing
any ideas what cause and treatment would be. he has a filter and tank maintenance weekly, with water treatment (conditioner) and theres been no other change in his tank except the adding of three apple snails.
I did notice one of the snails with shell damage....could he have hurt him self attacking the snail?

That is a beautiful betta fish! I have never heard of a betta fish attacking a snail, but it sounds like there is something in the water... que Jaws soundtrack. Scales will heal overtime, but you can often get remedies that help at petsmart. Fish really are amazing. They can heal their fins and scales by themselves. Humans can't regrow fingers. Good luck! I am sure your fish will recover. :D
