Is this kind of colour change normal?

I got a male betta 2 months ago. They told me he was roughly 4 months old. He was originally 2 coloured --> royal blue on his body and white on his tails and fins... with clear demarcation of the 2 colours

I noticed the blue "seeping" slowly into the whitethe last couple weeks, but his body colour so now his white tails and fins have blue streaks on them.

Last week his blue was looking a little bit neon green/blue- ish but still bright and everything... and then literally in 1 day I noticed some of his blue streaks on the fins are turning back to royal blue again...

Is this normal?

Yep. Your fish sounds like a marble. Pretty much almost any fish with white and another colour is marble. Marble Coloured fish change colour throughout their lives. Perfectly normal

Marbling is fascinating! If the Betta is kept in good condition he will marble and change colors. Enjoy your newly colored Betta. :D

Yes, it is normal for a marble betta to change colors. I have seen some really crazy color changes in marble bettas.
