My guy's mouth does that too. Does it look like he's blowing bubbles with no bubbles? Then It shouldn't be anything to worry about.

As Neil said, I don't think its anything to worry about.
My bettas do that every once and a while.

Some bettas do not have mouths that close fully for what ever reason. I suspect part of it may be genetic and possible part of what they're eating as they grow... but that is purely speculation on my part.

Nothing to worry about as long as he is eating normally.
