Please help, I'm worried

Hello everyone. I just want to ask if my fish is healthy?

Right now his condition are:
He swings pretty well [Fast]
He ate normally.
His scale are normal no ich or what so ever.

I just notice that his fin changed a little bit. is it because he is growing up or it is a problem to him?

Here are the photos of my betta.

I would suggest a pinch of diluted Aquarium salt in his tank.
And every time you do a water change, to replace the pinch of salt.
good luck.

kinda of difficult to tell from the photo.
just keep an eye open- make sure his scales do not pinecone
if you think he is a little bloated reduce his food or fast him for a few days.

How big is your tank? It looks too small. (A gallon minimum, 2-5g is recommended)

I also didn't notice a heater or filter, how warm is your water and how often do you change it?

Are you testing for ammonia?

Can you please describe how his fin is changing? Did it turn from blue to gray? Did it go from black to bright blue? Has it started to get smaller with jagged edges?

Definitely looks like fin rot to me. I would suggest getting a filtered tank with a minimum of 3 gal. In that setup you have now, you might have to do daily water changes

you must get a heater!!!
They like warm to hot water, without that he would start to get lethargic, not eat, etc.

He may have torn his fin on a decoration or bit it. In a container that size, the water needs daily or nearly daily changes with treatment. Most people here recommend Seachem prime to remove toxins from tap water and make it safe for the fish. It's hard for me to see if it's fin rot or just a tear. Aquarium salt will help clear it up if it's rot and help it heal quicker if it's a tear. Ammonia is a waste product that the fish makes, and that's why his home has to be cleaned a lot at that size. A bigger tank will need 1-2 times a week cleaning and only replacing some of the water instead of all of it.
