I'm assuming the male fry are a few months old at this point, since you can tell they're male? Anything younger and they might be too young to properly sex. Then my guess is yes, male fry can get stress marks and if they're getting stressed, it's probably time to start separating them before they begin fighting. Pics please, never seen betta fry.

The marks are not always stress related....they are a form of camo...communication.......however, as posted, it could also be in response to other males....this depends on their behavior......if they have marks and hiding, fins clamped, timid...etc.....or swimming normally, interacting, stripes kinda like spots on a baby deer......camo.....
