weird question...

my betta has got like a piece of my hair/piece of my cotton sweat pants hanging from his fin. He doesn't seem to care, he keeps swimming and blowing bubbles, but he must of gotten it from when i changed his water last night.Is there anything i should do ?

actually now that i look at it, it looks like a mini piece of my hair/a piece of my sweat pant string floating away from his gill.

If you are absolutely sure it is a hair or string from your clothing you could gently net him and pull it off him very carefully while still in the net. Or wait until it comes off on it's own. It may even come off on it's own while chasing him with a net.

Could it be part of his slime coat shedding off?

My thoughts went to stringy fungus type or parasite.. but those look different then hair or string.

i researched just now that type of stuff like colmunaris *sp* and he doesn't have any of these symptoms:

White spots on mouth, edges of scales, and fins
Cottony growth that eats away at the mouth
Fins disintegrate beginning at the edges
'Saddleback' lesion near the dorsal fin
Fungus often invades the affected skin
Rapid gilling in cases where gills are infected

Yeah... I wouldn't of even thought that was the case.. if it's a piece of hair, then he doesn't have a virus.
