gills are fallen off?!

whenever my betta flares, it looks like his gills are popping out. There's still huge gap before the gill and the body and there's like this huge hole......

It is most likely normal. There are gaps in their gills so water can pass through.

I mean the flaps really stretch out when he flares. It's like 90 degrees from his body.
