Either it's a trick in the lighting or one of your fish's eye may be changing or growing a tumor. Do his eyes look clear in regular light?

It's not a tumor.
It's a perfectly normal thing, just like a nocturnal animal's eye. You'll probably find it in your fish's other eye too, nothing to worry about.

I'm a little puzzled but I think you're talking about the refraction of light in your betta's eyes? Does this only happen when you take pics or see him under bright light? Or is there a red glare on your betta's eye all the time, even under dim light?

oh its not all the time,i'm pretty sure its the refraction of light to his eyes,like from when lights refracts from his eye in a certain angle or something,and its only one of his eyes so i was just wondering if theres something wrong with that one eye,SO NO TUMOR RIGHT?? its not popping out or anything,its normal other than the glare

Well, the red glare is normal. Eyes have something in them that absorbs and reflects bright lights like flashbulbs, causing that red glare. Like red eye in photographs. But why it would only happen in one eye is interesting. Perhaps he has impaired sight in the other eye?
