Is it rot? I can't tell

Got this guy just a few days ago. I'v attached images but their pretty crappy anyway. He seems active, he eats. His middle and bottom tails look fine, Blue with a clear white finish. But the top one seems to have a bit of red/purple in the white area. He can flare/extend it fully and such but I would rather be sure. I can barely make out the discoloration in these pictures if at all. I'v read about what rot looks like and what it does, if anything this guys seems like a minor case, I just can't tell if thats the way he is supposed to look or not because I'v had him for only 2 days.

Any tips are appreciated.

Also is it dangerous to treat for rot even though it may not be there? I also hear keeping a good temperature helps. I'v got a bettatherm betta bowl heater. Which is meant to keep the temp about 5 degrees above room temp. My rooms usually at a steady 23 deg celsius.

I honestly cant tell by the pictures but I would wait to see if clean water doesnt help usually it will fix it right up if its a minor case. I would wait a week and see where he stands.

Yea. I spent so long trying to get a real camera to get a good pic and everything was blurry. Ended up using a cell phone. In the first pic it's hard to tell but the top tail or fin or whatever does look a bit rougher and not as similar to the other 2. But ill take your advice and wait a bit to see if it gets worse.

It might be torn from bad water and it might have started to do fin rot but I have faith that he will be fine :)
