Question New walmart crowntail, is this fin rot? Tail biting? Torn fins?

Two days ago I got a red/purple/blue small crowntail, now named Frisco, from walmart. They didn't have very many bettas and the ones that were still alive mostly looked fairly healthy. Frisco here had terrible fins and his cup was pretty dirty. It didn't look like he had much life left in him if something wasn't done soon so I snatched him up. Once I got him fed and in his new 2.5 gallon home, he perked up very much. He acts perfectly fine, he is very active and eats like a pig. I've been giving him betta pellets and some bloodworms. His fins are just disheveled. I've been treating him aquarium salt and stress coat, but I'm not absolutely sure of what is going on with him. I've had many fish but I've never dealt with fin rot before. Does this look like fin rot? Is there anything else I can do for him other than frequent water changes, aquarium salt, and stress coat?

Please tell me that's food near his gill in the first pic lol

He looks like he maybe bit his fins or got in a fight, maybe even fin rot - but! They are growing back in and look nice and clear. whatever you're doing, keep doing it :)

It kind of looks like fin rot to me. You can treat your betta for fin rot if you are absolutatly sure that it really is fin rot. I hope he gets better. Beautiful betta by the way. Good luck!

Hmmm i don't see any fin rot, the clear ends are just new growth. It's hard to tell what caused the tears in the first place, but with clean water they will grow back in nicely =)

LOL yes, its food! He didn't want to be still for pictures so I fed him in hopes of getting him to be still for a bit. Thank you all for your opinions. I'll keep a close eye on him and keep up with the stress coat, a little aquarium salt, and clean as possible water. I really love his colors, I think he will turn out really nice once back healthy but hes got quite a bit of growing to do!
