Has My Betta Gone Insane?

My betta Oki, is my first Betta, I bought him yesterday from Petsmart. He settled in quite well and ate his pellets today. It feels like I have him for months, but I haven't. I'm worried he's gone batty, if thats possible.
Just ten minutes ago he was attempting to rest on his natural leaf hammock, suddenly he just started darting around banging into the filter, heater and the tank's sides multiple times, it only lasted less then a minute, and then he laid down under the heater in one of his favorite resting places.
Oki lives in a five gallon acrylic tank, with a 25 watt heater, a temperature constantly staying at 81 F, I also have a heater and the water is conditioned. Like I said I bought him yesterday, after days of researching, creeping the forum, etc.
Please help me!

What may have happened is you were walking too hard and you sent the vibration to him. thats what can happen if they arent on a sturdy stand. could that be what happened?

does he look like he has anything on his body? sometimes when they have parasites they will "dart" or rub against things to try to get the parasites off. I would keep an eye on him, he may just be getting used to his new home it has only been a day.

I don't think he has anything on him, although near his Caudal FIn and his Anal Fin he has a lump, you can see it from both sides... Is he just fat?
