If its not injury or genetic related it could be due to scare tissue from either injury or ammonia burns-usually it doesn't cause any problems for the Betta other than cosmetic.....not a lot can be done-but if he start to have problems-gasping, gulping etc.....you could try Epsom salt and tannin treatment.....

Lovely fella you have...nice find....

Thank you.He is just in the little tank?bowl i have but my freinds lived over 2 yrs in the same set up.He is like a dog,loves attention,i have him taking pellets off my finger tip like my last one but he rubs against my finger and watches me on the computer looking for attention.never knew Bettas were that clever
