Spot on the Pectoral fin?

My betta, Cacciato has a black spot on his right pectoral fin. As far as I can tell it isn't bothering him but I'm not an expert. Here are some pictures: http://kichwahya.deviantart.com/#/d3ajpry He has had this since I first got him from petco about 4 weeks ago. If you want to know his conditions after that and what happened to him you can go to this thread http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=63454
Just as an update to the current set up he is in a 1 gallon bowl inside the main tank and it is being changed daily.

What are water parameters currently?

Black scarring is almost always healing tissues from damage previously perpetrated by poor water quality. As long as he is behaving well and water parameters in order, I do not think I'd be any more concerned about it.

Ok good. I didn't think it was serious I was just curious. I don't currently have a water test kit, so I don't know the parameters. I'm saving up for one though so should have one in about a month. I know it's a long time but I'm broke and my only source of money is a 5 dollar a week allowance and the test kits are expensive.
