That is still a bit on the cold side, I would turn the heat up to 78. What are the water parameters? And do you have any plants or decorations for him to hide in? Bettas like having places to hide.

that's what you use a mirror for, to make him pose... that's what mine is doing in my avatar

think 78 is like the minimum you should keep a betta tank at. they also like fairly still water so if the current from your filter is pushing him around too much he might not like it. And don't forget to change some/all of the water frequently.
